2020 – Xilotl

By |2020-12-02T22:17:26-05:0024 September 2020|

Project Description

Climate-related challenges threaten the food security of indigenous smallholder farmers in southern Mexico. Discrimination and gender-based violence also limit women’s full participation in Mexican society. The IAF supports community-led approaches to creating economic opportunities for organic farmers and the social and economic inclusion of women and young people. Our grantee partner Xilotl Asociación para el Desarrollo Social A.C. (Xilotl) works with farmers to improve the sustainable production of diverse crops and livestock. Xilotl is training community promoters in sustainable farming techniques, delivering technical assistance and materials for families to improve yields and produce food during additional months of the year, and providing seed funding for women- and youth-led economic initiatives. It also supports networks of women and men that work to promote gender equity and reduce gender-based violence.
