Project Description

Indigenous communities living in a national protected area face a low quality life due to unstable food supply and limited decision-making opportunities in their communities. Asociación de Mujeres Unidas Para el Desarrollo Sostenible (ASMUDES) promotes sustainable farming practices, works to improve marketing for fruit and organic products, and provides technical assistance in leadership to encourage civic participation by women and young people. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Bolivia. ASMUDES’ activities promote smallholder agriculture and food production to enhance food security and ensure meaningful opportunities for communities to thrive.
