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.
