Here at Agros we are focused on long term results. Our development model is designed to enable the rural poor to develop long-term assets for themselves, breaking the cycle of poverty for generations to come. Because of this long range view, we are also focused on long term relationships. Good relationships are essential at every step of our development process, and because of this, we’ve launched this new website to deepen our relationship with you.
The “Agros Family” extends across five countries in Central America and Mexico, and we realize that connecting you to the extraordinary people who live in Agros villages is very difficult. Short of actually taking a trip, how can you see and hear firsthand from the families we serve? How can you get a better sense of their challenges, hopes, and dreams?
Today, because of the advances of easy-to-use and inexpensive technology, we now have the ability to keep you connected with video, with photos, and with stories published at this blog. Our hope is that this blog will be of real service to you, and you will come back again and again to share and participate in the transformative possibilities of Land, Hope, and Life!
