Strengthening advocacy and reducing vulnerability

Pajarcilla workshop at the UIEG
Pajarcilla workshop at the UIEG

After attending the emergency during the first three years, we continue with the next phase of the Comprehensive Habitat Reconstruction Project in which we focus on two key factors.

In the first place, through territorial analysis we seek to strengthen the organization, mutual help and self-management between different actors and between different communities such as La Cienega, Ojo de Agua and Xochistlahuaca. Second, we continue working on risk reduction and management through safe construction with the reinforced adobe system. This has generated our impact on public policies with the Ministry of Agrarian, Territorial and Urban Development, the instance of the Mexican State responsible for planning, coordinating, administering, generating and executing public policies to ensure adequate housing and rural development, among others purposes. 

 

Environmental Classroom at the Intercultural University of the State of Guerrero (UIEG)

Through an agreement with the Intercultural University of the State of Guerrero (UIEG for its acronym in spanish) we established a strategic alliance to build with students and academics the Environmental Classroom with the reinforced adobe system, which is ready to be completed.

Likewise, we continue with a training process based on workshops by construction stage with the students. Among these we can mention the pajarcilla workshop, which is a natural insulation made of clay and straw; the participatory design workshop for dry baths and the natural clay roof tile installation workshop. This has brought the strengthening and recovery of traditional knowledge among young people of the university that their commitment will be to bring this knowledge to more than 18 municipalities and 22 communities where they are from.

On the other hand, in 2013, in the community of El Obispo, we started a series of training workshops in constructive capacities to train community promoters. As a result of this process, the promoters who were trained participated in all the constructions we have carried out in different communities in the region for seven years, including the Environmental Classroom.

 

Center for Indigenous Education in Ojo de Agua community (Malinaltepec, Guerrero)

As a result of the efforts of teachers to achieve an adequate physical and social development space for learning, and through collaborative work at all stages of the Social Production of Habitat we inaugurate the Center for Indigenous Education (CEPI by acronym in spanish), in Ojo de Agua community.

Prior to the inauguration we conducted a workshop with teachers to evaluate the construction process and thus be able to make a wider diagnosis for future stages aimed at resilience, as well as, improve subsequent construction processes.

 

A new kitchen-dining room for The house of the amuzgos children in Xochistlahuaca

This year we started working in the Municipality of Xochistlahuaca after parents of the W'aa Yocanchu Ncue bilingual intercultural elementary school (The house of the amuzgos children in ñomndaa), contacted us to begin a constructive process in the dining room- Kitchen for the students.

We begin with workshops-diagnosis of participatory design with children; with mothers, who take care of the kitchen; parents, who take care of the productive areas; and teachers who manage the elementary school, in order to define the conformation of the spaces.

Nowadays, the kitchen-dining room is made of metal sheet and wood, and in participation with the community, it was proposed to build a space with the reinforced adobe system that responds to local climatic needs, likewise, it will contain the elements, on the one hand, to prepare and serve food for students, and on the other, to function as a meeting space.

 

Documentary about the reconstruction in Guerrero

Within the strategic line to sensitize communities, public institutions and other actors interested in the importance of Social Production of Habitat, we presented the short documentary Voices of inhabiting the reconstruction of Guerrero Mountain in the University bonding week of the UIEG.

This week, we will also present at the Center for Architectural and Urban Culture (CCAU, for its initials in Spanish) in the city of Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico.
