We promote ventures that provide residents with income opportunities
Through our economic development focus we promote training programs in different technical and vocational areas, such as masonry, welding, motorcycle mechanics, bakery, and beekeeping, among others. Through these programs we seek to diversify the economy and promote ventures that generate an income and provide job opportunities that allow residents to develop and improve their families’ standard of living.
Within our focus on economic development, the “13 Drops of Honey” beekeeping program stands out for its success: it has allowed 5 communities in Senahú to benefit from the sales generated by the production of honey.
As part of this focus, we also seek to develop the region’s traditional economies. To that end, we conduct training and offer support to small farmers, encouraging them to diversify their crops and use techniques that increase the productivity of their land. In this way, we help strengthen their sole source of livelihood and their food security while increasing their income.
