Member Spotlight: Proyecto Surcos

Proyecto Surcos (‘Furrows Project’) is an interdisciplinary group working in Community Health in Argentina. It promotes healthier living conditions from the resources of each community it serves, through the exchange of knowledge and skills. It has developed a health rights program to empower members of the Guaraní M’bya tribe in the Misiones region of north eastern Argentina.

Network Spotlights are short profile articles focusing on members of the Global Legal Empowerment Network. Spotlight articles use case studies and ‘key lessons’ to provide insights into the work of other network members. Whether you are working in the same country, with similar issues or want to understand new legal empowerment approaches, the Network Spotlight is a useful learning resource.
