We here at the IAF would like to take a moment to congratulate a grantee partner named among the top 500 best development projects in Latin America!
The IAF-sponsored Cooperativa de Producción y Servicios Especiales de los Productores de Camélidos Andinos (COOPECAN) qualified in two categories of the Premios Latinoamérica Verde 2017, or Green Latin Americas Prizes.
The Latin American Green Awards is an annual contest that recognizes the efforts of businesses and civil society organizations to advance sustainable development initiatives in categories like water and other natural resources preservation, social inclusion, energy and others. This year more than 2,500 projects from Latin America and the Caribbean participated. COOPECAN was ranked 25th for “human development” and 118th for “responsible production and consumption”ption”
Talk about community-led development!
What does it mean to “stay at home” when you’ve been spending months or even years searching for one? For Venezuelan migrants, recent events have further complicated their ability to create a sense of home.
In a context like Honduras in which violence and poverty abound but jobs do not, how do young people find hope? Many IAF grantees have been working to provide it.
Looking for scenes of beauty and strength during these challenging times? In early March 2020, several IAF staff members traveled to St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Antigua and Barbuda, and Saint Lucia to visit potential grantee partners. Get a peek into community-led innovations in the Caribbean through their photos.
