Rural communities in Tseltal communities of Ocosingo struggle with family violence and food supply issues. Comité de Derechos Humanos Fray Pedro Lorenzo de la Nada A.C. (Fray Pedro) promotes sustainable farming techniques in the harvest of corn, beans and vegetables that support food security and a culture of peace. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Mexico. Fray Pedro’s activities promote smallholder agriculture and food production to enhance food security and ensure meaningful opportunities for communities to thrive.
