Key programs that the Initiative will support

The Oaxaca Fund Initiative will support three programs in the areas of community development, education, and nutrition and health, directly managed by the Fundación Comunitaria Oaxaca.  Through these programs FCO’s team of staff and consultants work directly with rural indigenous communities to provide financial support, entrepreneurship training, ongoing technical assistance and mentoring services to form local leaders, and foster productive and healthy communities.  The diversity of these initiatives is tied together with a common thread: FCO’s firm commitment to generating fair practices and relationships between people and nature.  For this reason the projects that FCO undertakes promote the conservation of the natural environment.  To date, FCO’s programs have improved the standard of living for nearly 30,000 Oaxacan citizens focusing on five regions: Papaloapan, Sierra Norte, Valles Centrales, Sierra Sur and Costa (scroll over map to identify locations).
