Popular Education

The work approach carried out with children is through Popular Education, which is based on the premise that “teaching is not transferring knowledge, but creating possibilities for its production or construction”. For this reason, the work that we carry out in the three street spaces has as a component a school reinforcement, from day to day, through games and activities that allow generating and strengthening educational skills, as well as recognizing teaching at work as education, being a craftsman, a merchant, etc., promotes the development of capacities for the benefit of life.

The situation of the cOVID-19 pandemic does not make it clear when they will return to face-to-face classes, education continues to be distance education and the educational gap is growing, the challenge we are to face in the following months is to know how many children going back to school?

During work, we promote improved nutrition through the delivery of snacks to all attendees, teaching the importance of balanced nutrition.

At Melel we continue with educational support in markets and squares, but we know that we are going to have to redouble our efforts so that working children, when the time comes, go back to school.

Thank you for continuing to provide opportunities for the children of Chiapas.

New normal

As of August 2020, the "Learn at Home II" program began, which is the plan of the Government of Mexico for children to start the school cycle, however, the inequality that has deepened in recent months , it does not allow a good learning, since according to surveys we know that there is little access to the internet, children do not have accompaniment at home to perform tasks and above all, many of them have to increase their working hours for financial support family.

For this reason, Melel Xojobal continues to implement an educational accompaniment where advice is given on various school questions in markets and places so that children can continue solving their homework. In addition, educational scholarships have been supported for girls who do not have sufficient income to continue their studies.

2020 ended up being a year of great uncertainty, concern, concern, but also learning, solidarity and gratitude; We begin this 2021 with the hope of continuing to build a more just society.

Thank you for continuing to be part of the life of working children in Chiapas, together with Melel Xojobal. Happy 2021!

Arrumacos in the markets

The Covid-19 pandemic continues throughout the world, so maintaining health care is essential, for this reason, the "Arrumacos" space in Melel's stay is closed, but it has not closed attention to children between 1 and 6 years of age who, due to the economic crisis and low family income, have forced them to spend more time in markets and places with risks and a low diet.

The pre-school education centers remain closed and it is not an education that parents pay much attention to, so Melel has carried out work in markets and squares so that children continue with stimulation and basic education according to their age .

Pantry support to the neediest families has also been maintained to strengthen the nutrition of the youngest children.

2020 ended up being a year of great uncertainty, concern, concern, but also learning, solidarity and gratitude; We begin this 2021 with the hope of continuing to build a more just society.

Thank you for continuing to be part of the life of working children in Chiapas, together with Melel Xojobal. Happy 2021!
