We'll change our location at Global Giving

Dear friends,

Last year, the literacy campaigns working in Tlaxcala and Veracruz states achieved important goals in the communities. We really appreciate your contributions which let the volunteers to focus on their own activities.

¡Alfabetiza! is a replicable project which every two years choose a group of communities to work with. This 2011 one of the groups will continue working in Xúchitl, Veracruz. The other one finished its cycle in Altzayanca, Tlaxcala and now is looking for another locality, probably in Puebla.

In order to update some information and keep organized the score of donations, we have opened a new site in Global Giving and posted there this project. This ‘old’ page will be closed in the next few days.

Please go to the following link to donate and stay in touch with us, other way we can’t contact you again. 

We thank you again and wish you a good 2011 year

Both groups, one in Veracruz and the other in Tlaxcala, closured labors of 2010 with a ceremony with all the young volunteers and the adult students. For two months they worked together in two-hour daily sessions on topics like literacy, basic math and natural sciences, among others, depending on the interest of each group. During the weekends other workshops about health, bakery, vermicompost and phytotherapy were held.

Also, twice a week activities for teenagers were carried out in the communities using the methodology of Tlalana, other project by Adeco, looking to build local development projects. Likewise, kids under 13 years attended a workshop to promote lecture and with musical activities planned together with our project Canto que Florece

It is worth to mention the creation of one library in the community of Xúchitl (Veracruz) and the enlargement of two which were establish last year in communities of Ranchería Pocitos and Buenavista (Tlaxcala)
