By Isabel Lozano Maurer | The road we are on: learning as we go.
A year and a little more after the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, learning new ways to meet, paying attention to integral health, we can say that without lowering our guard in the face of the pandemic, we have managed to continue on our way together with the Tzeltal-Tzotsil Cooperative.
In these months the coolective work has been focused on the planning for the Social Networks of the Tzeltal-Tzotsil Cooperative for the year, a calendar was made identifying the dates that are important for the members of the cooperative in order to plan the way in which we want to share them with the outside world.
Taking advantage of the honey and coffee harvests and with the objective of involving the youngest members, they were invited to take photographs of these processes, to later turn them into material for the Tzeltal-Tzotsil Cooperative's social networks. We are very happy to see that the knowledge and tools shared in different spaces are being put into practice in the different work areas of the cooperative.
We know that the best way to learn is to learn by doing, and that is what has been achieved in this space and we continue, because we know that you can never learn by doing.

During these months we have been able to meet more with all the measures of care. We have been working on new strategies so we can adapt to these new COVID realities.
For that reason we have had some talks of basic health whit the cooperative members after the talks reflecting, the Cooperative realizes that for the numbers of partners it is necessary to have a health team, to help the cooperative in these areas, especially whit Covid right now.
We know that with the covid things have been a bit slow, especially in training issues, we had to adapt to the digital area, for some of the partners is a challenge so we are working little by little.We have also seen it as an opportunity to involve youngest people in the cooperative´s work, we invite them to collaborate in the digital area that some young people enjoy.
We decided together and in a community way that training will be resumed in 2021. We continue to seek and learn the best way to work and continue walking in the face of this global pandemic.
Unfortunately we had the loos of one onf the founding parthners who also worked for one of the campaign we did, we will remember him all the time.

Resuming activities in the coffee process
The Tzeltal- Tzotsil Cooperative is restarting some activities whit the nessesary measures fot the care of all is partners.
In collaboration with NGOimpacto, some people from the cooperative began a training process in community communication, the objective of these workshops is to give them the necessary tools to be the ones who generate their own internal and external communication material.
Some photography, video, text and graphic material were made as practice exercises These products will serve as materials for the campaign "Improving lives of vulnerable families in Chiapas”, and some other material for the cooperative diffusion.
At the same time we continued making and distributing materials in the Tzeltal and Tzotsil languages with COVID topic. These materials were physically delivered to the partners of the cooperatives and also through some social media like whats app.
