Project Description

Communities of the Chaco — an isolated lowland region with scarce water availability and extreme temperatures — live in extreme poverty and are often excluded from decisions that impact community development. Asociación Sombra de Árbol (ASdeA) promotes the cultural heritage of indigenous and creole communities and facilitates their participation in civil society. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to strengthen governance in Paraguay. ASdeA’s activities strengthen excluded communities so they can improve their living conditions and participate equally in a nation’s political, economic and social life.
