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. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Paraguay. TN’s activities promote smallholder agriculture and food production to enhance food security and ensure meaningful opportunities for communities to thrive.
