For the first time, farmers’ wives can press out the cactus seed using the oil press. The resulting oil is scarce and should provide the farmer’s wives with a good income. The farmer’s wives also receive adequate training to operate the oil press.
The project aims to contribute to generate development processes by identifying strategic and practical needs of different communities (mainly women and children), in order to achieve a more equitable society. This will also support a process of transformation based on social relations of equity between genders.
Among the main lines of work are education and training in agroecology, agroforestry, harvesting, efficient use of water and soil improvement with technical coverage, food security, etc.
