With the commitment of our partners CDRO and Serjus we have started a training course that, passing also from the creation of community organic gardens, will lead to the creation of social observatories and monitoring systems on Food and Nutrition Safety in the departments of Totonicapán and San Juan Ostuncalco. Families, ancestral and community authorities thus become protagonists of their own present and acquire the necessary awareness to become actors of future change.
Direct beneficiaries: 165 community leaders and 20 families from 13 communities in the departments involved, about 265 people in total.
Indirect beneficiaries: 51,000 inhabitants of the communities involved.
Project objectives: to contribute to the strengthening of dialogue and concertation between the Mayan ancestral authorities and the Guatemalan government authorities on the subject of food and nutritional sovereignty through training, the formulation and negotiation of proposals, the launch of monitoring systems and the development of pilot projects for the production of food using organic techniques.
