Chiapas, Mexico, 2015
Real del Triunfo is an agroecological apiculture project developed by Heifer Foundation in partnership with CESMACH (Campesinos Ecológicos de la Sierra Madre de Chiapas) which consists of giving species, training and marketing support to the peasants.
The “pase en cadena” is an essential part of the Heifer philosophy: when a family receives goods and services, it is committed to sharing with another family the received equivalent in order to create “chains solidarity” to promote work, companionship and dignity.
Currently, Real del Triunfo is a project that responds to the hope of many families of small coffee producers whose production has been adversely affected by the plague (coffee rust) that for the last two years affected the southern plantations.
