What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
26% of Ecuador's children under 5 suffer from malnourishment. Since 2000, the cost of food in Ecuador increased dramatically. It’s cheaper to buy a Peruvian potato than to produce it. The result: Thousands of peasants leaving their lands to find jobs in cities.This project activates the local government, private sector, and communities horizontally. Based on the microfinance principle of solidarity groups, communitarian organic orchards activate a "clan" organization inherent to their culture.
How will this project solve this problem?
If we can plant orchards, build greenhouses and wormeries, buy seedlings, and train people though workshops, we can enable people to provide for and feed themselves and their children.
Potential Long Term Impact
This project can activate the local government, private sector, and communities, horizontally. The ultimate goal is to achieve a better future, one in which children do not go hunger and are able to attend school and succeed in their adult lives.
