Melinda Kramer Hi
During the more than 10 years of the ACUA Foundation's experience in working with vulnerable Afro-descendant communities, victims of the armed conflict, we have identified women as the main victims of the historical inequalities faced by this population. Afro-descendant women in the municipality of Guapi represent 51% of the population and most of them live in poverty or extreme poverty.

In addition, we have identified that women are the main bearers of traditional knowledge and practices, they have preserved traditional knowledge and are now interested in bringing it to the community. Women have traditionally been responsible for the transfer of traditional knowledge from generation to generation.
I hope I have been clear, in case there are more doubts I will be attentive.

@Kate Rushton Hi. The project is estimated with three phases of one year each.
During the first year, training and capacity building will be carried out with regard to sowing, fishing and mollusc harvesting.
In the second year we will focus on establishing sustainable and coherent diets with the territory, we will use the traditional knowledge identified and we will put them at the service of the community.
The third year will be devoted to the systematization and collection of lessons learned, in addition there will be meetings of traditional cuisine to dialogue with the beneficiaries around the learning of the project and new perspectives
