Project Description

Rural areas of southern Ecuador often have few sources of income and many people, particularly young people, choose to migrate to urban areas and other countries in search of jobs. At the IAF, we support community-led approaches to expand economic opportunity. Our grantee partner, Asociación de Desarrollo Agropecuario Familiar de Güel (ADAF), is dedicated to helping individuals and families make a living in their community through sustainable agricultural production. ADAF trains local farmers in different organic production techniques and connects them to markets in the community and beyond. By supporting small-scale agriculture and increasing food security, ADAF helps provide healthy food choices, as well as alternatives to migration for its members.
