Deteriorating and unpredictable environmental conditions threaten the livelihoods of farming communities in Sulaco, Yoro. The Fundación en Acción Comunitaria de Honduras (FUNACH) works with families to establish agroforestry systems that increase sustainable production of coffee and grains, boost household incomes, enhance access to nutritional foods and protect the local water supply. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Honduras. FUNACH’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 our broader initiative to support economic prosperity, democracy and governance consistent with the U.S Strategy for Engagement in Central America.
