Human Development, the heart of NGOimpacto
Working hand by hand with women artisans in Altos de Chiapas.
Human Development is an area whose main objective is to strengthen the self-esteem and leadership of indigenous women artisans in the Highlands of Chiapas. Our commitment is to focus on the implementation of human development curricula, incorporating elements of ethical community leadership facilitation and conflict resolution. Our strategy is that these tools become one of the pillars that support the collective organization from a relationship of respect and active listening.
The Human Development activities have represented an opportunity to create support networks among women, within a safe environment for them, generating spaces for the exchange of experiences and active listening outside their daily work, allowing them to connect with each other based on empathy and recognition of their emotions.
The women found in the facilitations a space for conflict resolution and assertive communication, being the exchange of experiences an opportunity that will allow us to continue promoting positive changes in the personal and collective life of the partners.
The women's circle is a powerful resource for building trust and continuing to develop intercultural communication and intersectionality, while at the same time demonstrating that it is a powerful tool for conflict resolution.
The strengthening of the partners' participatory leadership allowed us to see their capacity to transcend the limitations imposed by social inequalities and to develop communication and decision-making skills.
