Food Sovereignty for 50 Families in Mexico

by Central de Ejidos y Comunidades de Mexico CECOM A.C. Effective Nonprofit

Summary

The installation of orchards for the production of vegetables will enable us to contribute to improving the sovereignty and food security of 50 vulnerable families in areas of high marginalization, affected by social and environmental problems in southeastern Mexico. This type of orchards allows to obtain excellent yields at low cost, contributing to the production of healthy food in a friendly and sustainable way to the environment.

Challenge

In Mexico, 23.4% of the population has a lack of access to food in general and 32.4% of the population is in malnutrition due to the lack of access to healthy food, especially children, women and older adults. More vulnerable, this lack is provoked to a greater extent by the lack of adequate infrastructure and by the lack of knowledge to be able to produce healthy foods.

Solution

The implementation of the proposal will develop productive capacities in the planning process and establishment of the vegetable garden, as well as for the control of pests and diseases, in addition to providing 50 families with the necessary infrastructure to contribute to food security. It will focus on nutrition issues and encourage families to share knowledge with their neighbors and family members for greater impact.

Long-Term Impact

The nutrition, sovereignty and food security of 250 people, among whom we have children, women, and elderly people, will be directly improved. In addition, we intend to indirectly increase the number of people with disabilities by sharing experiences.
