Update: Improve Nutrition in a Guatemalan Village

International Development Exchange (IDEX) is a San Francisco-based social change organization whose mission is to promote economic empowerment and social change in Africa, Asia and Latin America. In Guatemala, one of IDEX’s local partners is the Association for the Promotion of Health and Socio-Economic Development (APROSADSE), an organization founded in 1975 to train and support Maya Cak’chiquel health promoters and midwives. Today, the focus of APROSADSE is to address the socioeconomic needs of rural farming communities through microcredit, organic agriculture and livestock collectives, and adult education. See how they are doing.
