Women in Paraguay often struggle to feed their families. Tierra Nueva Asociación Civil (TN) provides technical assistance to women in organic gardening to improve production for consumption and sales, and helps them access inexpensive biodigesters that generate organic fertilizer and biofuel for family use.
