Sometimes, a small push is enough can transform our entire reality” says Marcelo Roma, a family farmer benefited by the Foundation in Southern Bahia Lowlands, region where the institution’s Social Program, the PDCIS, was created, and continues to promote social transformation by encouraging the formation of a generation of young protagonists and knowledge multipliers for their families and communities through agriculture.
