Proyecto Fomenta, invited me to promote vermiculture to a group of women living in poverty. The project was founded in 2007 by a group of young Guatemalan professionals. Today a group of more than 20 volunteers work in the project located in “Aldea Tres Pinos”, La Union, Zacapa, in Guatemala.
Promoting vermiculture in one day was not an easy task, its a continuous process of learning. Women were interested in vermiculture but at the same time they were considering different types of rural enterprises to generate an economic income.
