Beginning to rebuild community in 5 communities

Dear donors:

 

Due to we haven´t got the amount of money to build enough houses in one community, we have changed our strategy. We are beginning to build community centers in the communities where we have got housing demand. These centers have already a specific use that the community decided. The first one is a Wisdom Center built by 5 communities in Mexcaltepec, Chilapa municipality.

The other 4 centers will be built for Indigenous Education, teachers need a place to meet, discuss, and plan education programs, and they have been looking for a place the last 3 years without any success. The communities are: Ojo de Agua, La Ciénenga, Paraje Montero and el Tejocote. They will be building two centers per year, and by 2018 another 20 houses will be built in the first community. So we have enough time to keep going with the fund raising.

The first Wisdom Center has just finished it's construction process in Mexcapletepec, Chilapa where all the technical assistance was given by the building community Promoter that Cooperación Comunitaria has been training since 3 years ago. He was able to direct the construction and give the assistance to the construction groups from 5 communities that were involved in the Center’s construction. Cooperacion Comunitaria’s architects were there just to give the theoretical and hands-on workshops, as well as supervising the construction twice. It took one month to build it, thanks to the excellent assistance of the Promoter as well as the organizational skills of the communities. 

As well we have worked in a Spanish video where you can watch the testimonies form the families that have built their reinforced adobe homes, composting toilets and wood saving stoves. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TwQQSW5Ot98&t=39s

Thank you once again for your support and being part of this project that enable people from affected communities to improve their living conditions!

With all our gratitude
