Peru Castrovirreyna

The Peru - Castrovirreyna program is working with indigenous farmers to increase the quantity of food available and the nutritional status of their children.To increase  yields, farmers will be trained on diversifying farm plots, organic production methods, establishing seed-banks, improving post harvest storage, and establishing family gardens and greenhouses. Families will have more access to meat after training on small livestock rearing. Farmers will also be trained to market their organic potato and vegetable crops and better manage their farm revenue. Families will also receive training on good nutrition and hygiene habits, and a deworming campaign is being coordinated with local health posts.
