Update: Sustainability for Guatemalan Farmers

We're so grateful for your ongoing support of Agros communities like Villa Linda in Guatemala!  The community is making great progress thanks to your commitment.

We are excited to share with you the Summer 2011 update for Villa Linda.  You can also access this update on our website at The report highlights some of the opportunities and challenges that the community faces, and their plans for the coming year. Some of those plans include managing a nursery of coffee plant seedlings, cultivating a garden of medicinal plants to treat common ailments, and continuing with sewing and literacy classes for the community’s women.

In addition to these more recent updates, the report also features annual indicators that monitor the progress of the village over time, so that you can follow the community's journey out of poverty.

As always, we’d welcome any feedback you may have about these reports.  Thanks again for your partnership in helping families to escape the cycle of generational poverty in Guatemala!
