Farming families from rural municipalities in Tziscao, Chiapas, often live in extreme poverty. Sociedad de Solidaridad Social `Los Lagos de Colores,` SSS (Lagos de Colores) encourages a network of grassroots organizations to adopt farming practices compatible with the responsible use of the environment and helps improve production, processing and marketing of coffee, honey and vegetables. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Mexico. Lagos de Colores’ activities promote smallholder agriculture and food production to enhance food security and ensure meaningful opportunities for communities to thrive.
