Community of Madrid

The community of Madrid is one of many autonomous communities of Spain. There are a number of development projects run by the community, both national and international, principally focusing on grants.

Paraguay

Like many other Latin American countries, Paraguay struggles with the fact that economic improvements in recent years have had little impact on a large percentage of the population. The country’s rural population suffers from high rates of poverty and frequently lacks the most basic of needs. Extreme inequality is persistent, and so far, public policies have failed to have any impact in reducing these inequalities in the name of development.

Bolivia

Bolivia is home to some of the highest poverty rates in all of South America, with over 75% of Bolivian households lacking regular access to basic foods -- conditions that are particularly acute among rural and indigenous communities. In response to this long-standing reality, the Bolivian government instituted a national Zero Malnutrition Program in 2006 that prioritized tackling undernutrition amongst communities experiencing high rates of food insecurity.
