WORKING WITH
MAYAN COMMUNITIES

FUNCEDESCRI partners with the Mayan farming communities in Campur, Cunén, and Nebaj. Our field staff is from the communities themselves and therefore can speak the local languages of K´ekchi´, Quiché, and Ixil, which facilitates learning and cultural understanding. We have collaborated with our partner communities for 20 years and constantly work to refine our strategies for responsible community engagement. Our work empowers farming families through the process of achieving food security and food sovereignty.
