Art and culture as a pathway to reintegration
Art and culture as a pathway to reintegration

(English below)

Gracias a tus generosas aportaciones hemos podido continuar con nuestros programas de atención a poblaciones vulnerables de la Ciudad de México. El desarrollo de nuestros tres ejes de trabajo para apoyar a los beneficiarios ha sido posible gracias a tu donativo y queremos contarte un poco de lo que hemos realizado en estos últimos cuatro meses.

1)   Atención a grupos en situación de calle.

Continuamos con nuestras campañas de escucha, reconocimiento y apoyo en la mejora de calidad de vida de personas en situación de calle. Iniciamos un programa de asesorías y educación a grupos vulnerables que duermen en albergues de la Ciudad de México y repartimos ropa de invierno en espacios públicos.

2)   Un programa de atención con perspectiva de género

En alianza con organizaciones como COPRED y la Comisión de Derechos Humanos, iniciamos un programa educativo sobre salud menstrual y repartimos toallas femeninas a mujeres en situación de calle.

3)   Actividades para promover un espacio de expresión

En el marco de la Semana del arte 2023, organizamos una exposición colectiva con los beneficiarios del proyecto Mi Valedor, en la que mostramos grabados y dibujos resultado de un conjunto de talleres guiados por artistas voluntarios.

4)   Una fuente de ingresos para los beneficiarios

Estuvimos presentes en eventos culturales y ferias de arte dentro de la Semana del arte 2023, como Zona Maco y la Feria de Arte Material, en los que los beneficiarios tuvieron oportunidad de vender sus revistas y así generar un ingreso legítimo y constante.

5)   Un nuevo número impreso de la revista cultural Mi Valedor

El primer número impreso de nuestra revista La esquina de Mi Valedor de 2023 fue publicado en febrero. Con esta nueva revista, los beneficiarios pueden continuar ofreciendo un producto que les genera un ingreso extra y que ayuda a romper las barreras de la exclusión. La revista es nuestra herramienta de trabajo.

6)   Vinculación con organizaciones e instituciones de gobierno

Logramos acuerdos con organizaciones como COPRED (el Consejo para prevenir y eliminar la Discriminación de la Ciudad de México) y el Instituto de Reinserción de la Ciudad de México, para apoyar a más personas en situación de vulnerabilidad. Además, espacios culturales como el Museo Franz Mayer son ahora oficialmente un punto de venta para los beneficiarios de nuestro proyecto.

Y todo esto fue posible gracias a tu generoso donativo. ¡Muchas gracias!

4 months of work in favor of those who need it most.

Thanks to your generous contributions we have been able to continue with our programs for vulnerable populations in Mexico City. The development of our three areas of work to support the beneficiaries have been possible thanks to your donation and we want to share with you a little of what we have done in the last four months.

1) Attention to groups in street situations.

We continued with our campaigns of listening, recognition and support to improve the quality of life of people living on the streets. We initiated a counseling and education program for vulnerable groups sleeping in shelters in Mexico City and distributed winter clothing in public spaces.

2) An assistance program with a gender perspective.

In alliance with organizations such as COPRED and the Human Rights Commission, we initiated an educational program on menstrual health and distributed feminine pads to women in street situations.

3) Activities to promote a space for expression

As part of Art Week 2023, we organized a group exhibition with the beneficiaries of the Mi Valedor project, in which we displayed prints and drawings resulting from a series of workshops led by volunteer artists.

4) A source of income for the beneficiaries

We were present at cultural events and art fairs within Art Week 2023, such as Zona Maco and the Material Art Fair, where beneficiaries had the opportunity to sell their magazines and in this way generate a legitimate and steady income.

5) A new print issue of Mi Valedor cultural magazine

The first print issue of our magazine La esquina de Mi Valedor for 2023 was published in February. With this new magazine, the beneficiaries can continue to offer a product that generates extra income and helps to break down the barriers of exclusion. The magazine is our working tool.

6) Relations with government organizations and institutions

We reached agreements with organizations such as COPRED (the Council to Prevent and Eliminate Discrimination in Mexico City) and the Mexico City Reinsertion Institute, to support more people in vulnerable situations. In addition, cultural spaces such as the Franz Mayer Museum are now officially a point of sale for the beneficiaries of our project.

And all of this was possible thanks to your generous donation, thank you very much!
