After two weeks of holidays for children and collaborators, Mayama, returned to its regular operations in August, always keeping in mind, continuing transforming the lives of children and families by sharing the best of us.

That is why, in this period Mayama, in addition to hiring a new professional personal to work with children and their families, focused on training their collaborators on topics such as development of teaching skills, emotional intelligence and family intervention techniques, in order to strengthen the effectiveness of the intervention we perform in our target population.

The professionalization of employees in the field of the organization is a key element to ensure the fulfillment of their objectives, it also ensures that the personal has the necessary knowledge and skills to execute their work in a correct way. In addition, the constant training allows the development of tools that complement the work to do.

Finally, we are pleased to share with our donors that after a process of evaluations, we began the phase of "I trust" with families and children of Tonalá neighborhood, whose main characteristic is that the economic income is through the collection of pet bottles.

This phase of 6 months, is one of the three that compound our intervention model, which aims to ensure the commitment and permanence of the beneficiaries of the program through psychoeducational sessions in each home, to promote co-responsibility among Mayama A.C. and families.

For us it is important to generate a bond of trust with families to promote responsibility.
On November 25 this phase of trust concludes, which will guarantee a social impact on the lives of children and families in Jalisco, Mexico

It has been three months of continuous improvement in an intensive way, this has been possible thanks to your donation. Thank you for bringing out the best of you to continue transforming the lives of children and their families.

Emotional exhaustion, loss of enthusiasm, decreased self-efficacy are the main symptoms of Burn Out, Vicarious Trauma or Compassion Fatigue, which add to physical, mental and emotional suffering from chronic stress associated with professionals dedicated to the care of others. Although the Mayama team can be classified as operational and administrative, we believe that as long as attention is paid to the mental health of the collaborators, it will be directly reflected in the detriment or improvement in the fulfillment of the institutional mission and in this sense in the Quality of care that our children receive and the positive impact on improving their quality of life.

On this occasion we want to share our donors, a project that happens "behind the scenes", but we consider key that they know because if you are part of Mayama (with its constant support to the development of our 240 children we currently attend), Less that Mayama can do, is to co-invest (be co-responsible) with the health of the team that cares for the children.

This project that we share today, has been implemented during 2017, and is a mental health program for employees that covers the main aspects for the care and prevention of human suffering: physical, mental and emotional; Through oriental techniques: 1) Yoga (physical), 2) Ki-Gong (mental) active meditation, 3) Korean techniques and manopression (emotional) and 4) social integration strategies throughout 2017 . 

The process started slowly (physically speaking), to detect illnesses. For example: after circular movements with the neck, palpate cervical area number 7, exercises that include sitting on the floor with legs bent at 90 degrees, lifting one leg at 90 degrees lying down, folding arm stretched towards body, touching jaw, base of the tongue; The group diagnosis at the moment throws team of collaborators of MAYAMA A.C. has problems of stress, lack of flexibility, back neck strain, feet, obesity, anxiety, exhaustion and physical and emotional fatigue. However, within the positive changes to 5 months of implementation, is that the collaborators mention have decreased headaches, stress, there is greater concentration, energy and more importantly: greater awareness of the emotional, physical and spiritual care of each one.

 

Do you consider this project important for the care of our children?

Thank you very much!.
