Ejerciendo el derecho a la vivienda adecuada en Monte Alegre

Durante los últimos tres meses en Monte Alegre, ubicada en la Montaña de Guerrero, 23 familias se han unido para ejercer su derecho a la vivienda adecuada. En este proceso, se realizaron diagnósticos familiares para entender las necesidades específicas de cada hogar. Un total de 29 participantes, mayoritariamente mujeres (86%), se involucraron en mapear zonas de riesgo, infraestructura y áreas propensas a incendios en la comunidad. Una vez identificada una zona segura para la construcción de viviendas, las familias iniciaron un ejercicio de diseño participativo. Aquí, los propósitos individuales de cada familia tomaron forma, considerando el modelo reforzado de adobe y las características particulares de los materiales locales.

Todavía necesitamos tu géneroso apoyo para poder completar las 23 viviendas

¡sigue formando parte de nuestro gran trabajo colaborativo!

 

Baños secos: una alternativa saludable, sustentable y autogestiva

En paralelo, en Tejocote y en la Ciénega, se llevó a cabo la implementación de baños secos como una alternativa saludable, sustentable y autogestiva para dos espacios educativos indígenas.  

  1. En Tejocote, se visitó el Telebachillerato comunitario, donde se llevó a cabo un taller sobre el uso y mantenimiento de baños secos. Se procedió con el trazado y selección del terreno, y actualmente, los padres de familia están participando activamente en la producción de adobe.
  2. En la Universidad Intercultural del Estado de Guerrero, se finalizaron los últimos detalles de los baños secos. Se llevó a cabo un taller para más de 100 alumnos de las 4 carreras, abordando el uso y mantenimiento. La entrega oficial e inauguración se realizó con la sensibilización del área de mantenimiento y la implementación de un plan operativo para garantizar el uso y mantenimiento continuo.

Estos esfuerzos conjuntos reflejan el compromiso y la participación activa de las comunidades en la mejora de las condiciones de vida, la construcción de espacios sostenibles y la promoción de prácticas de autogestión comunitaria.

Exercising the Right to Adequate Housing in Monte Alegre

Over the past three months in Monte Alegre, located in the Guerrero Mountains, 23 families have come together to exercise their right to adequate housing. In this process, family diagnostics were conducted to understand the specific needs of each household. A total of 29 participants, mostly women (86%), engaged in mapping risk zones, infrastructure, and fire-prone areas in the community. Once a safe area for housing construction was identified, families began a participatory design exercise. Here, the individual purposes of each family took shape, considering the reinforced adobe model and the unique characteristics of local materials.

We still need your generous support to be able to complete the 23 homes

Continue to be part of our great collaborative work!

Dry toilets: A healthy, sustainable, and self-managed alternative

Simultaneously, in Tejocote and La Ciénega, the implementation of dry toilets took place as a healthy, sustainable, and self-managed alternative for two indigenous educational spaces.

1. In Tejocote, a workshop on the use and maintenance of dry toilets was conducted at the community Telebachillerato. The site layout and selection were carried out, and currently, parents are actively involved in adobe production.

2. At the Intercultural University of the State of Guerrero, the final details of the dry toilets were completed. A workshop for over 100 students from the 4 majors was conducted, addressing usage and maintenance. The official delivery and inauguration took place with the sensitization of the maintenance area and the implementation of an operational plan to ensure continuous use and maintenance.

These joint efforts reflect the commitment and active participation of communities in improving living conditions, constructing sustainable spaces, and promoting community self-management practices.
