However, the delays imposed by the health conditions arising from the COVID 19 pandemic, with regard to the start in the construction of the New Mayama Day Center, we consider that soon work will begin to materialize this important project that will undoubtedly enhance Mayama's work for the benefit of the communities for which it devotes its work.

Despite this, the girls and boys of the 5th Generation have continued to work on the My Development program with group and individual sessions, face-to-face and remote, which continued to allow them to develop their life skills. For their part, the children of the 6th Generation began their activities with the integration into the My Developmentprogramme, but where appropriate, in the confidence phase, which allows to establish a linkof co-responsibility and empathy between the Mayama families, creating mutual commitments guaranteeing a sustainable process throughout the program, which ensures the adherence, identity, security and active participation of Mayama to achieve the objectives set out.

With regard to the My Family programme, work continued with both family and group sessions according to the process of each generation (either 5th or 6th) at a distance and, when the conditions of the epidemiological risk traffic light of the State of Jalisco have allowed, they have been carried out in person. There were also 756 sessions, with an average attendance of 77%.

In addition to the above, he continued to monitor indicators of the "vulnerability traffic light", which allows to monitor by colors the current situation of the family because of the following aspects: HEALTH  (physical, mental and food),  EDUCATION (school stay and distance classes) and ECONOMY  (reductionofwages, unemployment and adequacy in income that allow to cover the basic needs of family members).

Families in which critical situations of violence have been presented, particularly against children, were also cared for and monitored; all of the above under the My Rights programme;in addition, specific information and advice hasbeen offered to address the aspects of vulnerability traffic light.

Moreover, in this reporting period, 284 pantries have been handed over to active families  and 63  to families graduated from Mayama.  27 air-weather smartphone donations have also been handed over, ensuring that beneficiaries maintain their connectivity for compliance and participation in their respective school activities, as well as those related to Mayama. 23  air-time  donations for cell phones have also been given to families with great difficulties in covering this resource.  Also integrated into the Mayama Model  25 families who identified themselves with current situation of unemployment or sensitive income reduction, which began to receive a fortnightly pantry, mitigating this problem.

During this reporting quarter, and due to the contingency caused by the COVID 19 pandemic, the relevant authorities have not yet authorized the start of construction of the NEW MAYAMA Day Center; however, remote work continues with the 148 families that are part of the Education Model, which has allowed their continuity despite the adversity caused by the health contingency. Within the framework of the 4 lines of action implemented from the pandemic, the following goals and results have been achieved:

Zero hunger that aims to deliver pantries to the families most in need. To date, 11 large deliveries have been made fortnightly and/or monthly, delivering approximately 1,600 pantries during this period.

Zero Infected aims to provide basic information on care and hygiene measures for contagion prevention. During this period, 300 hygiene kits were delivered to Mayama families including soap, anti-bacterial gel, chlorine, water cover, surface disinfectant, among others. Information sessions on the disease continued, and in general on care and hygiene measures for the prevention of contagions.

Zero Violence that aims to establish an action plan for each family in order to face the pandemic with the support of programs of other institutions (government, companies, etc.) to support the economy, health and education. From April until now we adapt educational sessions with Mayama children and families. The sessions we held at the homes of the families were replaced by sessions by telephone or videoconference (when the technological infrastructure of the family allowed it). In total, distance sessions with an average attendance of 82% have taken place from April to October 1665.

Peace and resilience, girls and boys participating in sketching and prototyping on coronavirus issues and how it is affecting the lives of millions of people. During July and August the 214 children participated in the Corona Challenge, who using the Design Think method and the Dutch organization Designathon. In the end, 12 finalist works were selected, which were recognized and awarded. Another project carried out with children during the pandemic is the "Real Heroes and Heroines in a Real World" campaign, which consisted of creating stories about those who, from the perspective of Mayama children, have become true heroes during the pandemic. Stories about care, protection, love and resilience in the midst of the crisis. Subsequently, these stories were told through the social networks of Mexican actresses and actors to raise awareness of the new reality for Mayama families. Finally this project, with the help of professional writers and illustrators, has been transformed into a publication that will soon be shared to the world. The New Day Center and, in general, the entire Mayama Educational Model are a life expectancy for girls and boys who require our support and solidarity.

We invite you to continue supporting us to achieve our mission.

A new reality against COVID-19, during this period the one-year authorization was obtained for the construction of the Centre; however it has been postponed due to the health contingency, so efforts have been channelled in support of families with humanitarian aid and in the construction of peace and resilience, as well as adapting the distance educational program incorporating the use of information and communication technologies in its processes for the distribution of pantries , health kits, as well as kits with educational material for the 148 families we work with.

That is why we are joining efforts at a distance to care for girls, children and their families and to realize Mayama's mission of developing her assertive decision-making skills and substantive improvement in her quality of life and dealing with situations like the one we live in.

Construction of the Center will be restarted as soon as we have government authorization.

Today more than ever the importance of continuing the goal of having the New Day Center.

To all our donors;

We are very pleased to inform you that during this trimester (January–March) we have reinforced our Fundraising campaign to be able to start our construction work and begin our new learning center. This opportunity will transform the lives of twice our actual size with 500 children every 3 years. 

So with lots of joy this past 26th February, children, donors, board members, families and Mayama´s staff made a very unique and special celebration to thank the nature for our new land, to thank life for this new path and to thank our donors for believing in our transformational work.  We danced together, chanted together, even planted a tree together.

After 4 years in the Mayama Skills Development Model, 82 children conclude their process, increasing their abilities and maturation age; that is to say, that on average the children graduate between 9 and 13 years of chronological age, they managed to level their age at that age. This means that they improved their self-esteem and managed to control their impulses, in addition to introjecting a culture of peace and a broader vision to choose, freely and assertively, a life project in terms of health (addiction prevention), education (staying in school), reproductive life (sexuality according to its maturation stage) and access to decent work; under a Human Rights perspective.

After graduating from Mayama; It is expected that the practice of their skills will take them from the individual to the interpersonal and the community. To demonstrate their skills (reflect, communicate ideas, think), team projects were implemented to intervene in their communities: 1) Mural for raising awareness about domestic violence, 2) Fukuoka Bombs workshop for the sowing of vegetable gardens, 3) Workshop the plate of good food to raise awareness about obesity and personal health care; taught in schools, 4) Reforesting my community taught in some colonies whose logistics consisted of truck stops and houses, 5) Mexican Games Olympics, in the colony and here were Mexican game competitions such as roosters, among others and 6) construction of giant PET container made of inosidable steel. In this last phase the methodology of project learning (learning by doing), children put into practice their thinking skills through the reflection of a problem in their colonies: raise a problem, inspire, investigate, solve, and prototype creation to solve the problem (product, video, machine, documentary) so that children become change agents.

As for families, they increased their stronger parental skills to maintain a more conducive development scenario for the child that promotes the restoration of their rights, the rights of their children, and a community life with more support networks in the colonies that it promotes. break cycles of marginalization and violence.
