HOW DO LOMAS FAMILIES PARTICIPATE? Families need to feel responsible for their chicken coop or garden so that they will take good care of it for years to come. That´s why our partner families contribute 10% of the cost of materials, do all the manual labor and are encouraged to teach other families what they have learned.

AMEXTRA: AMEXTRA is a nonprofit organization that generates transformative alternatives to the poverty that many families face living in rural and urban communities of Mexico. The programs are based upon sustainable and holistic development, emphasizing community participation and ownership.
