Our Partners

We believe that for development to be sustainable, it must be owned, driven and led by local people. For this reason, we work in partnership with local grassroots organizations that have shown energy, creativity and a proven ability to address the needs of their communities.  
Our Mesoamerican partners represent Indigenous peoples (including Ch’ol, Tzotzil, K’iché, Mam, Kakchikel, Garifuna, Lenca, Miskitu, Ngobe-Bugle), Afro-descendant populations, small-scale farmers, youth, and women
