The IALAs (Latin American Institute of Agroecology) are an initiative of global peasant movement La Via Campesina to train young people in the principles and practices of agroecology.
In this video we learn more about the experiences of graduates from IALA Ixim Ulew in Nicaragua through the eyes of Migdalia Cruz, a young woman from Jinotega, a coffee growing department in northern Nicaragua. Migdalia is a member of the grassroots organization ATC (Asociación de Trabajadores del Campo, or Rural Workers’ Association).
