2017-Rede Bartô

By |2021-01-11T18:51:21-05:0013 July 2017|

Project Description

Smallholder farmers on the São Bartolomeu River watershed struggle with environmental degradation and limited access to local markets. Associação Rede Rio São Bartolomeu de Mútua Cooperação (Rede Bartô) works with young people in rural community associations in the Federal District to improve the production, processing, and marketing of vegetables, fruits, and small animals and to contribute to the conservation of natural resources. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Brazil. Rede Bartô’s activities promote smallholder agriculture and food production to enhance food security and ensure meaningful opportunities for communities to thrive.

Project Amendments

This amendment provides Rede Bartô with an additional 24 months and $249,518 to support Venezuelan migrants living in the periphery of Brasilia by helping them establish microenterprises, connecting them with Brazilian smallholder farmers, and raising awareness of their needs among their host community. As part of the amendment, Rede Bartô is mobilizing an additional $256,372 in counterpart support to the grant agreement.

This amendment is part of the IAF’s commitment to support displaced Venezuelans and communities impacted by the Venezuelan humanitarian crisis.
