AFEDES:
The organization and its work

Asociación Femenina para el Desarrollo de Sacatépquez (AFEDES) was founded 1988 in response to the challenges of food insecurity, chronic malnutrition, inequality, and exclusion of women in the municipality of Santiago Sacatepéquez. They focus on the physical, economic and political autonomy of Indigenous women and their families. AFEDES promotes food sovereignty, political education, and building human capacities, including training in indigenous weaving as part of Indigenous traditional knowledge.
