Food security is an issue for the communities of Opatoro in the department of La Paz. Asociación Solidaridad (SOLIDARIDAD) provides farming families with technical assistance to develop skills in crop diversification and in the Finca Humana (Human Farm) approach to sustainable farming and facilitates knowledge sharing among solidarity groups. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Honduras. SOLIDARIDAD’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.
