Farmers in the community of Se’konon in Alta Verapaz lack clear ownership of their land and face food insecurity. Asociación de Abogados y Notarios Mayas de Guatemala (AANMG) works with farmers to increase food by developing skills in crop diversification and in obtaining clear land titles. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Guatemala. AANMG’s activities assist civil society groups to propel their own development and defend their rights.
This grant is part of our broader initiative to support economic prosperity, democracy and governance consistent with the U.S. Strategy for Engagement in Central America.
