In this first quarter of the year, we have achieved the development of 190 training sessions in the My Development program with 191 girls and boys of generation 5 and 6. The sessions have been developed with a focus on the promotion of environments with greater equity and equality. The children have expressed their ideas in sketches about how they wish to transform their spaces into more equitable places, where boys and girls are respected on equal terms and are not violated because of their condition as children or their gender.
During this period, we have also been making preparations for the graduation event of 76 boys and girls of generation 5, from their four-year educational process with Mayama, which will take place on March 5 in Tlaquepaque, Jalisco. This result is the consolidation of a formative process, in which these children and their 54 families have acquired the life, social, emotional, cognitive and communicative skills that enable them to develop in the community, and the parental skills and competencies for good family functioning.
We are proud of the work done this quarter during which we have benefited 195 children and 128 families, and 730 direct beneficiaries.
These beneficiaries have participated in activities that seek to create more egalitarian and equitable environments, using the design thinking methodology, which uses creativiy and play to teach and achieve changes to improve quality life. During this period, the following sessions have been held:
Inspire which consists of sensitizing families about the different forms of inequality, specifically the relationships between men and women, adults and children that are identified among people in everyday life.
Research that delves into the problem of inequality from families through a research process using different means such as interviews, internet consultations, books, etc.
And the ideate session that aims for families to identify situations of inequality that surround them based on what they investigated so that they can choose a specific problem and initiate the design of a creative solution proposal.

It is a joy to share with you the great results of our work during this quarter, in which we have managed to provide care to 195 girls and boys.
We carried out remote and face-to-face sessions with girls and boys of the 5th generation on issues of ecological habits, self-concept, self-esteem, family strengths, stress management and emotion management. And with the 6th generation of girls and boys, sessions were held on issues of coexistence, values, self-care, identity, emotions, and stress management. In total, 512 training sessions were held with girls and boys with a participation rate of 74.97% attendance.
128 families of generations 3, 4,5 and 6 were cared for, with the following activities: Fostering autonomy in daughters and sons, needs of caregivers and caregivers for the exercise of their parenting and self-recognition, empathy, parental needs and tools, resources for the exercise of parenting, emotional warmth, emotions, good treatment and emotional control and emotional ties. During this period, 747 sessions were held with an attendance rate of 85.37%.
Moreover, food pantry was delivered for 2 months to 25 families in difficult economic situation, due to unemployment or reduced income caused by Covid-19. Likewise, families were supported with access to data so that children could attend the school year and the Mayama training sessions in the distance modality in response to the Covid-19 pandemic; and 19 cases related to the right to health, education and identity, and the right to life free of violence were attended.
Thank you for helping to make all these actions a reality.
