MISSION CAPSULES: Maria de los Angeles used to depend on purchasing expensive produce at the market in order to feed her family. All that has changed because of PWS&D programs working to help farmers in her region end hunger by planting new types of fruits and vegetables and diversifying diets. The program is also ensuring that farmers know how to deal with Nicaragua's often-dry climate. Maria has learned how to collect and recycle leaves to help trap moisture in the soil and make organic fertilizers. This resourcefulness is allowing Maria and other farmers like her to succeed. Maria is careful to give back what she takes, by helping to nurture her small piece of land by planting new trees and using environmentally sustainable farming techniques - and sharing this knowledge with her children and community to help ensure better futures for all.
