Continuation of human development workshops

By Marcos Avalos | Content manager

During these months we have continued with the facilitation of Human Development, observing great advances within the groups that are consolidating with a better capacity of organization and participation in the activities of the workshops.

For a community to have the possibility of flourishing in the different areas of its social, economic and cultural situation, it is essential that its inhabitants have access to the full development of their capacities. According to the United Nations Development Program, human development is a concept that covers the different areas of human growth. Essentially aims the possibility of a person from the free decision-making. In other words, the themes that comprise human development point to the creation of an environment in which people can develop their maximum potential, have a productive and creative life in relation to their interests and needs.

"We do not have to keep bad things in our hearts because they hurt us.
Manuela, artisan of Huixtán."

ONG Impacto has implemented a series of facilitation in which different dynamics are developed with artisans. These workshops are given by the facilitators Silvia López López (originally from the municipality of Chamula) and Imelda Gómez Girón (originally from the community of Tenejapa). The work seeks to foster critical reflections on topics related to Teamwork, Leadership, and Self-esteem. The methodologies of these facilitations are aimed at improving the quality of life of the communities. They also seek to identify the individual and group problems to which the artisans face day by day with respect to their customs and traditions.

"When we die, our knowledge dies with us if we do not share it."
Antonia, an artisan from Tenejapa

During the facilitation, the artisans reiterated the importance of recognizing themselves, their limitations, virtues, abilities, and work. They also expressed the benefits of creating spaces exclusively for them, where they can reflect on the improvement of their work as a group.

"I was surprised when they told me I could be a leader because I did not know."
Rosalinda, artisan of Huixtán.
