Promoting Agroecology Methods

With your support, a new, experienced staff member is overseeing the agroecology program as it continues to thrive with its purchase of pigs, chickens, and fruit trees. Other EduPaz programs continue to grow as well:

• The Tziscao Center provides medical services, nutrition workshops, daycare services and psychological support to those in need.

• Community microcredit groups are gaining popularity, and participants are taking a more serious approach to their savings.

• There are gender awareness workshops in the works. EduPaz is assessing what local women would like to focus on, and how they would like to participate.

Future plans for EduPaz include forming additional microcredit groups, conducting more eco-technology workshops, and training 10 young community members to become agroecology promoters.

By donating to EduPaz you are ensuring more families can benefit from this program.

Thank you for your support.
