 Second quarterly report for GlobalGiving

 Project Title: Stop hunger for indigenous families in Honduras (53804)

 The resources of this project have been used by COMAL Network to support farmers and indigenous families in order to contribute to food and nutritional security, as well as investments in productive infrastructure. This will allow greater resilience to climate change and also contribute to income generation especially for indigenous women in rural communities in western Honduras.

 Main achievements:

 Incentivized the Local Resilient Economy, at least 15 families led by Lenca indigenous women, organized in the Juan Bautista Community Store, in the community Los Encinos, municipality of Intibucá, with technical advice from Red COMAL, have improved their productive infrastructure through a mesh house for the production of vegetable seedlings. During this period, 8 thousand lettuce seedlings have been produced. This is an economic initiative to generate income for families through the sale of seedlings. It is sold at fair prices to other horticultural producers in the same rural communities.

 Promoting integrated agroecology and identifying crops with potential value for scaling up and increasing the resilience of the community. 12 families led by indigenous Lenca women, members of the Association of Producers of Rio Grande Intibucá - APRORGIL, located in the community of Rio Grande, Intibucá, have received support for the installation of an agroecological plot, which will be a demonstration plot. A water storage tank, drip irrigation system and seeds have been provided. It is expected that the productive chain will be strengthened and that these women will be able to buy seedlings from women in the Los Encinos community.

 In addition, 20 families led by women in the communities of Taulabé and La Paz have been supported with banana seedlings to diversify their family plots.

 On behalf of the Board of Directors and the community organizations affiliated with COMAL Network, we would like to express our gratitude to all the donors who, through GlobalGiving, make this support possible to improve the living conditions of rural and indigenous families in western Honduras.

On behalf of the farmers and indigenous families accompanied by Red COMAL, we thank you for all the support you have given us! Resources from this project were used to support small farmers and indigenous families in order to fight hunger, increase household income and build resilience to climate change by implementing more holistic and sustainable agricultural practices through agroecology, thus contributing to healthy nutrition in rural communities.

Main achievements:

  • Strengthened knowledge and capacities of 134 farmers and indigenous families. 40 families in the departments of La Paz and Comayagua cultivated plantains. 34 families from Lempira, Yoro and Santa Bárbara, diversified their plots with avocado and lemon crops, and 60 families from Intibucá and La Paz received support with vegetable seeds.
  • 15 families in Intibucá improved their chicken coops and 10 families in Taulabé received egg laying hens and materials to build chicken coops. 30 farming and indigenous families in La Paz implemented at least 5 practices and technologies to adapt to climate change in their productive units (wastewater filters for irrigation, cement tanks for water storage and drip irrigation systems).
  • 154 farming and indigenous families implemented agroecological practices through agroecological inputs (biofertilizers, calcium sulphate and Bocashi) for the management of their crops, thus reducing the use of chemicals and environmental pollution.

Thank you again for your generous support and commitment to communities in Honduras!
