Investing in Rural Communities and their Local Solutions

EduPaz has enjoyed great success with its Agroecology Program, which has helped boost food production and generate income for indigenous Mayan communities in rural Chiapas. EduPaz is now moving forward with its holistic approach to continue to build and strengthen local economies through their unique Economic Solidarity Program

They are taking momentous steps to further ensure growth and success of each program by focusing their efforts on the following:

  • Strengthening the organizing skills and training for community leaders
  • Promoting agroecology with microcredit groups, taking advantage of the sustainable agriculture demonstration plots so community members can then go on to replicating practices and knowledge in their communities, reaching many more people.
  • Highlighting focus on groups of women and youth and integrating them more in the processes
  • Motivating and building awareness in the community with various popular education tools such as film, murals, dialogues with other leaders, teachers, local authorities and religious leaders

It is through generous contributions that organizations such as EduPaz can continue to invest in rural communities and their local solutions to sustainable development.  Donate today and you will enhance and accelerate EduPaz's success of creating sustainable futures for Mayan communities!
