on the methodology of the Better Families program
Fundazucar began the transfer of the Better Families program with the training of 36 facilitators from the Municipal Directorate for Women -DMM- and the Municipal Office for Nutritional Food Security -OMSAN- of four municipalities of the department of Escuintla and one of the department of Suchitepequez after signing a cooperation agreement with municipal authorities.
The training program addressed the subject of Nutritional Food Security Policy and its four pillars, as well as the appropriate techniques for teaching adults.
In March 2021, the Guatemalan Sugar Industry, through its Sugar Foundation -Fundazucar-, signed a cooperation agreement with municipal authorities of Escuintla, Masagua, La Democracia and La Gomera for the transfer of the methodology of the Better Families program with a validity of 15 consecutive months.
The Municipality of San Lorenzo, Suchitepequez joined this agreement in July and began the initial phase of the program in August with the aim of promoting Nutritional Food Security and recognizing women of reproductive age as an agent of change in the community.
