Project Description

Tseltal indigenous women and their families struggle to obtain sufficient food through small-scale agriculture. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions that enhance food security in Mexico. In Chilón, Chiapas, our grantee partner, Sbelal Kuxlejalil A.C. (SKU), provides Tseltal women with technical assistance for sustainable vegetable, fruit, and small livestock production to improve their livelihoods. In addition to improving food security, SKU’s activities strengthen grassroots organizations and empower Tseltal women as community leaders.
