SFR Seed is proud to support Minga Peru, a leading non-profit in Peru, that supports marginalized communities in the Amazon rainforest.
In the Amazon, Minga creates inter-cultural radio programs, trains community promoters, and partners with local organizations, governments, and schools to serve rural families. Information is power and Minga empowers this population, especially the women, with information and services related to human rights, health, domestic violence, conservation, and eco-friendly, income-generating projects.
These efforts increase food security and make extra money for women to pay for their children’s health care and education.
Minga has made it possible for more than 260 artisan women and their families increase their monthly incomes from $30 to $100 per month.
