Project Report | May 11, 2022
The identity of working children

By Maria Garcia | Project Leader

Our work in this period has been to learn more about the identity of each of the child workers, who are they? where do they come from? what is your family's job? How do they participate in that work?

In this way they can identify more where they come from and recognize how valuable the family and social roots that each one has.

One of the activities that we carried out in this block was to learn more about the indigenous culture of Chiapas through textiles, for this reason we visited the Los Altos de Chiapas museum, where children from the three markets where we collaborated attended. .

Being able to attend a space like the museum has provided the opportunity to open the minds and creativity of children, encouraging observation and listening.

Throughout the educational process, more than 240 working girls and adolescents participated, who today make critical reflections according to their age, about their origins and the importance of respecting them in order to grow.

Your collaboration in this process has been fundamental, with your support we can continue providing education through meaningful learning to indigenous child workers in San Cristóbal de las Casas.

We invite you to follow us on our social networks @melelxojobal and learn much more about what we do. https://www.facebook.com/melelxojobal
