Field of Action: Sustainable Development
Brief Description: IPRU executes a variety of social development programmes on the basis of gender equality in marginalized rural and urban communities. Specific work programmes of educational, social and cultural character are implemented with the purpose of meeting the basic needs of the population involved in these activities. Preventive assistance is offered to children of both sexes suffering from social exclusion. Thus far, more than 1000 boys and girls have participated in these activities. Approximately 10.000 families have benefited from these local development programmes, including the Agro Ecology and Environment Programme that brings services through technical assistance and agronomic capacity training to rural organizations, producer associations, teachers and students on health, environmental protection and nutritional issues.
