Life skills training session with Mayama children
Life skills training session with Mayama children

In the last quarter Mayama has been movilizing materials  for the construction of the new center, there are many materials that are required to realize this dream, such as bricks, cement, sand, rebar, wire, nails, among others.

At the same time, Mayama advances in its formative processes, which for the moment are developed in a rented headquarters and in which it carries out a training process with 102 children of generation 6, which is in its second year of formation of the educational model and attends the entrance of a new generation of Mayama children, which is integrated by 150 children from the municipality of San Pedro Tlaquepaque, Jalisco.

To date, Mayama works to strengthen the children's life skills, enabling them to improve their self-knowledge, the management of emotions and feelings, assertive communication, empathy, interpersonal relationships, conflict management and creative thinking, and addresses with their parents the best practices to strengthen parenting skills and care at home.

The construction project of the New Learning Center Mayama consists of four stages for its realization, which are: Stage 1 Structural Work, which includes all the structural engineering of the civil work; Stage 2 Concrete Structure for the realization of the facilities; Stage 3 of the installation of kitchen, bathroom facilities and electrical accessories; and Stage 4 of Finishing, which includes painting, windows, ironwork, gardening between others.

At this moment we are in the beginning of Stage 1, to make this project a reality, which will transform the lives of the children and their families of the communities of the Guadalajara Metropolitan Area, by providing adequate spaces so that these children can be trained in values and life skills and be managers of their own development.

Our new Mayama Center will use an innovative construction design with a rainwater catchment system, for which we have been holding meetings to evaluate the feasibility of this system. In addition, our Construction Committee has been making arrangements for our new center to have a children's dining room to provide food for 230 children on a monthly basis, which will improve the welfare and quality of life of these children.

 

The construction of the fence of the land where the New Center is located has also been completed, and we are planning to hold an event on the land on April 5th, which we have called "Laying of the First Stone", and in which we are inviting all our current and potential donors to participate, as well as government authorities and the media.

We have recently been working on the reception of the building materials that have been donated to us for the construction of the New Mayama Center, and we have also defined, together with our architects, the schedule and details of the construction process. Likewise, it is important to recognize that the design of the Center has been a participatory process that has gathered the needs of the beneficiary families and children, and of the different users of the Mayama programs.

On the other hand, we have continued to advance in the training processes with Mayama children and their families regarding how to make their environments more equitable through reading and reflection on stories, with high attendance and commitment from the participants.

 Thanks to you, the construction of our Center continues to advance, the criteria that we have taken into account for the selection of the land where our center is built are:

a) That its location is within the area of the Mayama population, this is Tonalá and Tlaquepaque.

b) Have accesible transportation.

c) Not located in a high crime area

 

While all this is happening, our Mayama girls and boys continue to be trained in life skills and we have also undertaken training in design thinking to develop capacities for co-creation and improvement in their environments and their quality of life, transforming their lives through a seven-step process that are: Inspire, Research, Ideate, Sketch, Make, Show and Reflect on the great challenges they face and their solutions.
