Présentation
Contribute to the autonomy and sustainability of the Pankararu community by strengthening the chain of production and marketing of native fruits.
The Pankararu people have been suffering from long drought periods resulting from a long history of colonization and therefore exclusion and disregard to indigenous land which confined these communities in largely degragated areas. The project hopes to include the community to create alternatives in land restoration that generates income through fruit pulp production and commecialization in local schools and commerce.
The project´s goal is to improve the variety of fruits in the region, along with a system of fruit pulp production which will help benefit the community with a wider possibility of generating income and creating productivity that enriches the land.
