On September 7 and 19, 2017, Mexico was hit by two earthquakes of 8.2 and 7.1, respectively, which affected the states of Chiapas, Mexico City, State of Mexico, Guerrero, Morelos, Puebla and Oaxaca. From that moment on, NGOimpacto's commitment was to use all our experience to create this project in the state of Chiapas. The inclusion of women in disaster recovery processes has been fundamental to ensure the sustainability and success of community actions as a whole, considering that disasters affect them differently. This is how Casa de las Mujeres Santiago el Pinar "Adriana Aguerrebere", since its reconstruction, has become a place that responds to these needs, strengthening the rights of women and girls and promoting greater resilience in the face of future disasters. After more than 4 years we believe it is time to close this campaign, we thank all national and international donors who came through GlobalGiving to support the reconstruction. We continue to work in the strengthening and formation of women, if you are interested in learning more and support, I leave you the link to the projects.
Rebuilding the hearts of the women of Santiago el Pinar
By Karla Aguerrebere | Project Leader
The inauguration of La Casa de las Mujeres de Santiago el Pinar "Adriana Aguerrebere" is the culmination of one of the great dreams of the women of Santiago el Pinar and Adriana, founder of NGOimpacto. It is a space where, hand in hand with the Municipal Council of Women, their human rights are strengthened, and they become agents of change in their community and for their community.
Adriana said, "I feel that we still have a lot of work to do to get to the point where we can help rebuild a space that will be a development center for women in Santiago el Pinar". Convinced that the aim was not only to intervene communities affected by 7s 2017 but to leave something that would work for the future.
Although Adriana is no longer with us physically; her legacy and love will remain in the hearts of the women of Santiago el Pinar.
