Project Description

Cacao producing families in northwestern Panama live in extreme poverty and are plagued by food insecurity. Asociación de Profesionales y Técnicos Ngäbe-Buglé de Bocas del Toro (APROTENG-B) works with the Cooperativa de Servicios Multiples Ngäbe-Cémaco, R.L. and its members to improve cacao production, diversify agricultural production, and increase family income through workshops, farmer-to-farmer exchanges, and youth training. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to enhance economic opportunity in Panama. APROTENG-B’s activities support smallholder agriculture and food security to ensure meaningful opportunities for communities to thrive.
