Project Description

Illicit activities and the lack of jobs in Paraguay’s Concepción Department hinder economic and community development. Asociación Paí Tavytera RekoPave (APTR) helps indigenous families, especially women and young people, improve organic agricultural production, cultivate traditional crops, and develop a more reliable food supply. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic development in Paraguay. APTR’s activities promote smallholder agriculture and food production to enhance food security and ensure meaningful opportunities for communities to thrive.

As a part of the amendment, APTR is mobilizing an additional $13,000 in counterpart resources to the grant agreement.

This amendment provides APTR with an additional $100,000 to expand technical assistance in organic agricultural production and sales to three additional indigenous communities.
