Challenge

Rural communities in Oaxaca, Mexico face severe problems related to overexploited agricultural lands, water scarcity, and natural resource depletion. Technical and practical knowledge in green technologies is necessary to increase local self-sufficiency, create better living conditions, and preserve the region's biodiversity and cultural identity. This project offers hands-on training and practical solutions for communities to restore the landscape, grow their own food, and use renewable energy.

Solution

Organic gardens teach families how to grow clean food to improve their diets. Rainwater storage tanks provide a reliable source of water in arid landscapes. Solar energy ovens use renewable energy to cook and reduce the dependence on fossil fuels.

Long-Term Impact

Practical training in low-cost green technologies will provide 30 families with food and water self-sufficiency, thus improving their livelihoods and providing them with skills to train future generation in their community.
