Challenge

We are zapoteca indigenous who are still reconstructing our communities from the 2017 earthquake. As we are a vulnerable group the effects of COVID-19 have had a huge impact on us. 58% of the population lives in poverty and some of them lack a place to live. The pandemic affected our access to food because many communities established roadblocks during several months to reduce contagions.This extreme measures are resulting in diverse social conflicts that are intensifying the economic affectat

Solution

As a solution we are reinforcing our post disaster productive and educational intervention model, by empowering the cooperatives of traditional handcrafts and trades of our communities. The earthquake teaches us that resilience is our best weapon. We adapted our model to a high long term impact in the community, under distance and on-site workshops adapted to low-income participants. Focusing on women and kids who are the primary linkage in their social environment.

Long-Term Impact

Ancestral knowledge and cultural traditions maintain communities united. Together we can impulse sustainable activities based on circular economy models assisted by technology. Boosting this model we can help up to 150 women to develop strategies that allow zapoteca indigenous communities to achieve the good living.
