3rd Report: We continue to work remotely

As part of our COVID19 action plan, Mayama continues her work in support of children and families. The organization maintains focus on educational processes without losing sight of the enormous need for humanitarian aid for families living in high marginalization in the Metropolitan Area of Guadalajara. Our action plan includes 4 goals, and these are its main results:

  1. Zero hunger: from April to October 2020, the organization has supported with food pantries the 148 families that are part of our programs, and 60 families graduated from our programs. In total, 11 fortnightly and monthly deliveries of this aid have been made, delivering more than 1600 pantries during this period.
  2. Zero infected: At the end of March, prior to the suspension of activities at our Educational Center, we held briefings with girls, boys and families to raise awareness of the severity of the COVID19 pandemic and provide basic information on care and hygienemeasures for contagion prevention. In addition, 300 hygiene kits were delivered to Mayama families including soap, antibacterial gel, chlorine, water cover, surface disinfectant, among others.
  3. Zero violence: From April and until now we adapt educational sessions with Mayama children and families. The sessions we held at the homes of the families were replaced by sessions by telephone or videoconference (when the technological infrastructure of the family allowed it). Some of the topics that have been addressed are the formulation of an Action Plan for each family to address the pandemic and to complement this family plan, Mayama educators have permanently accompanied and provided information regarding programs of other government institutions, private and social to support the economy, health and education. Educational sessions have also been held to reflect on gender equity and the distribution of domestic work among families during the pandemic. In total, distance sessions with an average attendance of 82% have taken place from April to October 1665.
  4. Peace and resilience: During July and August, the 214 girls and boysparticipated in the Corona Challenge, who using the Design Think method and supported by the Mayama education team and the Dutch organization Designathon, were informed about how Coronavirus is affecting the lives of millions of people around the world and the different problems related to the pandemic. Girls and boys sketched and prototyped the ideas they generated to solve the multiple problems. In the end, 12 finalist works were selected, which were recognized and awarded. Another project carried out with children during the pandemic is the "Real Heroes and Heroines in a Real World" campaign, which consisted of creating stories about those who, from the perspective of Mayama children, have become true heroes during the pandemic. Stories about care, protection, love and resilience in the midst of the crisis. Subsequently, these stories were told through the social networks of Mexican actresses and actors to raise awareness of the new reality for Mayama families. Finally, this project, with the help of professional writers and illustrators, has been transformed into a publication that will soon be shared to the world.

During this reporting quarter, and due to the contingency caused by the COVID 19 pandemic, the relevant authorities have not yet authorized the start of construction of the NEW MAYAMA Day Center; however, remote work continues with the 148 families that are part of the Education Model, which has allowed their continuity despite the adversity caused by the health contingency. Within the framework of the 4 lines of action implemented from the pandemic, the following goals and results have been achieved:

Zero hunger that aims to deliver pantries to the families most in need. To date, 11 large deliveries have been made fortnightly and/or monthly, delivering approximately 1,600 pantries during this period.

Zero Infected aims to provide basic information on care and hygiene measures for contagion prevention. During this period, 300 hygiene kits were delivered to Mayama families including soap, anti-bacterial gel, chlorine, water cover, surface disinfectant, among others. Information sessions on the disease continued, and in general on care and hygiene measures for the prevention of contagions.

Zero Violence that aims to establish an action plan for each family in order to face the pandemic with the support of programs of other institutions (government, companies, etc.) to support the economy, health and education. From April until now we adapt educational sessions with Mayama children and families. The sessions we held at the homes of the families were replaced by sessions by telephone or videoconference (when the technological infrastructure of the family allowed it). In total, distance sessions with an average attendance of 82% have taken place from April to October 1665.

Peace and resilience, girls and boys participating in sketching and prototyping on coronavirus issues and how it is affecting the lives of millions of people. During July and August the 214 children participated in the Corona Challenge, who using the Design Think method and the Dutch organization Designathon. In the end, 12 finalist works were selected, which were recognized and awarded. Another project carried out with children during the pandemic is the "Real Heroes and Heroines in a Real World" campaign, which consisted of creating stories about those who, from the perspective of Mayama children, have become true heroes during the pandemic.

Finally this project, with the help of professional writers and illustrators, has been transformed into a publication that will soon be shared to the world. The New Day Center and, in general, the entire Mayama Educational Model are a life expectancy for girls and boys who require our support and solidarity.

We invite you to continue supporting us to achieve our mission.

2th. Report 2020: Continuity vs. Covid 19

On the occasion of COVID-19, and from March 20, Mayama decides to suspend face-to-face activities in its Day Center, as well as family intervention processes in the communities of the Municipalities of Tonalá and Tlaquepaque, Jalisco. In the face of the health emergency, the organization decided to implement an Action Plan based on 4 key strategies: zero hunger, zero infected, zero violence and peace and resilience, which in turn are part of an Integral Plan that ensures minimum conditions of safety, food, education and health (physical and mental) among the beneficiary population during the contingency.

 Among the actions carried out are the development of a campaign for the delivery of food pantries, hygiene and health kits, as well as educational kits.  Although the organization focuses on development and human rights, due to this contingency it has also adapted new actions towards humanitarian aid and assistance.

 Mayama is convinced that she should not miss the compass of educational work with girls, children and their families, as it represents the lever to ensure the sustainable development of these individuals and their communities, so the project takes on a fundamental relevance to continue the education of girls, children and their families at a distance, both with family sessions and sessions with themselves, to ensure reflective spaces that allow to continue the development of social, emotional, resilient, educational, educational and gender equity skills. From the above, families can generate family improvement plans, think of solutions through support networks and proposals for substantive improvement in the face of this contingency, as well as having tools of survival in the face of critical situations like this in the future.

 Their donations have been of vital importance for the continuity of the remote project, in which technological equipment is being integrated.
