Guatemala: Farming for the Future, Photo Update
Posted on: Friday, August 28, 2009
On a recent worktrip to Guatemala, Executive Director Vivian Stromberg and Program Coordinator Natalia Caruso visited our sister organization, Muixil.
Muixil is a group of 350 Indigenous Ixil women living in the highlands of Guatemala. In the 1980s, the highlands were the epicenter of a genocide against Indigenous Peoples.
Today, our partners at Muixil are working to rebuild their families and communities and creating solutions to entrenched poverty and hunger. MADRE is working with the women on a sustainable pig farming project so that they can feed their families and earn income from the sale of pigs.
