More families have rebuilt their homes and habitat

In the last months we have been working on the reconstruction of the habitat in 3 communities of the Mountain region of Guerrero. 

84 wood saving stoves 

24 composting toilets

15 reinforced adobe houses. 

3 community promoters trained by Cooperación Comunitaria to give technical assistance and supervising.

Our comprehensive method which we work with, focus on the environmental, productive, constructive, and cultural dimensions in order to solve complex situations from the several factors that affect the communities.

Cooperación Comunitaria has provided the building materials, has accompanied the constructive process, giving technical assistance, supervising the self-construction as well as increasing the organisational, self-management and building skills of the families in communities. 

Today more families live in a secure, better quality and sustainable habitat.

Thank you for your support and being involved
