More than calories: Food diversity and improved health for Maya children in Santa Cruz La Laguna
In the village communities of Jaibalito and Santa Cruz La Laguna, over 70% of indigenous infants are malnourished. Families have unbalanced diets because of a lack of knowledge about what a healthy diet is. Many children can’t get enough nutrients from the limited amounts of food. The families learn in culturally adapted and practical workshops how they can widen the range of their diet with important foods by growing fruit and vegetables in their gardens.
Improving livelihoods of farming families in the watershed of the Rio Quiscab
The majority of the indigenous rural population in the Rio Quiscab watershed area in the Sololá department survive off self-sufficient subsistence agriculture. 70% of these farming families are poor. They overexploit their natural resources, water, forest, and soil. We help smallholder families use their land in a way that conserves resources while still improving their yields.
