Traditional farming practices of Chinameca’s small-scale farming families hinder their living conditions as well as food production and yields. Asociación para el Desarrollo de Chinameca (ASDECHI) provides technical assistance to young people on sustainable farming practices that reduce the use of agrochemicals to improve the quality of their crops. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in El Salvador. ASDECHI’s activities promote smallholder agriculture and food production to enhance food security and ensure meaningful opportunities for communities to thrive.
This grant is part of the IAF’s efforts to address the root causes of irregular migration in Central America.
