Building food sovereignty with women
Dear Friends of the solidarity,
The Association of Communities for the Development of Chalatenango - CCR has been working for the empowerment of the women of Chalatenango since 2008, strengthening local committees and training on gender issues, women's rights, and food sovereignty.
We are working with more than 200 women members of the Women's Associations of the department of Chalatenango in organic production processes to guarantee an improvement in the economy and the quality of life of women and their families. As a result of these processes, women have trained in sustainable agriculture with a focus on agroecology.
With the campaign Women Sowing Seeds of Hope, we seek to continue supporting organized women in Chalatenango in the different processes they carry out from their communities. To contribute to the development of family sustainability based on the production that guarantees healthy and sustainable food, also the care of water, land, and native seeds.
With seeds of hope, we want to benefit 300 women from the communities. We are inviting your contribution to help purchase kits for organic production. Each kit has a cost of $ 85.00 and includes: native seeds and essential agricultural tools. A donation of any amount is welcomed to support organized women.
The CCR, together with the SHARE Foundation invite you as our solidarity friend to accompany this path of sowing seeds of hope and harvesting healthy food for a future of sustainable agriculture in the organized communities of Chalatenango.
With our abrazo solidario,
Rubia Guardado- CCR Chalatenango
