Project Description

Rural communities in Corrientes Province often lack jobs or access to learn employability skills. Asociación Civil “La Choza” – Centro de Iniciativas para el Desarrollo Local provides training and technical assistance to a cooperative and to young people to develop sustainable community-based ecotourism enterprises in and around a protected wetland area. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Argentina. La Choza’s activities encourage small business growth, local entrepreneurship and market development to ensure meaningful opportunities for communities to thrive.
