Wholistic Programming and Bringing Back Indigenous Practices

Thank you for your generous donations to this project. EduPaz works with indigenous farmers in Chiapas to increase the use and knowledge of green agro-technologies. This means introducing new methods, such as vermi-compost, but also bringing back some of the indigenous knowledge that has waned in the face of government subsidies for industrial methods. Part of EduPaz’s programmatic structure, and one reason it is such an effect program, is it’s wholistic approach to education and development. It’s group processes requires that community economies through microcredits include agroecological practices, skill-building and learning, organizing and participation, gender equity and process of inclusion of all community members. Now that’s what we call sustainable!
