Project Description

Communities in southeastern Paraguay face many development challenges, like job scarcity and outmigration to cities. Entidad Socio Cultural Alo Paraguaiete (ESCAP) trains family farmers in organic agricultural techniques, beekeeping and animal husbandry to improve food security and income, and works to strengthen the capacity of a regional alliance of organizations to advocate for community development. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Paraguay. ESCAP’s activities promote smallholder agriculture and food production to enhance food security and ensure meaningful opportunities for communities to thrive.
