Buenas tardes y muchas gracias una vez más por acompañarnos en este proceso de crecer y de crear. 

Gracias porque desde antes de la cena de recaudación #MasNiñasJuntas han confiado en nuestras habilidades y trabajo, prueba de ello han sido sus aportes y participación en la cena, Esto nos permitió avanzar en nuestro sueño mucho más rápido, el cual les hemos ido contando en los reportes anteriores. 

Seguimos produciendo, aprendiendo y trabajando en la Casa Productiva, todas unidas. Nos complace decirles que la producción aumenta cada mes un poco más, durante marzo vendimos aproximadamente de 28,000 huevos. Llegamos a clientes de Chisec hasta la capital, las ventas nos han permitido seguir operando y aprendiendo sobre agricultura regenerativa y prácticas sostenibles para hacer más efectivo el trabajo de la Casa Productiva. 

El apoyo de nuestros socios del Population Council y Socialab ha sido clave para la ejecución de fondos y todos los avances que ahora pueden ver. Hemos logrado nuestro objetivo en esta plataforma y por lo mismo, nos retiramos de la misma. Enseñándoles nuestro último logro; el branding e imagen oficial que representará tanto a nuestra Casa Productiva como a nuestros huevos. 

Su ayuda siempre sigue siendo bienvenida y necesaria para avanzar haciendo de este sueño un éxito. Les agradecemos por habernos acompañado y esperamos de todo corazón puedan seguirlo haciendolo, para que podamos así cumplir todas las metas que vienen por delante. ¡Dejamos aquí nuestro contacto! Nos encantaría seguir en comunicación.

Good afternoon and thank you once again for joining us in this process of growing and creating.

Thank you because since before the fundraising dinner #MasNiñasJuntas you have trusted in our skills and work, proof of this has been your contributions and participation in the dinner. This has allowed us to advance in our dream much faster, which we have been telling you about in previous reports.

We continue to produce, learn and work at the Productive House, all together. We are pleased to tell you that production increases a little more each month, during March we sold approximately 28,000 eggs. We reached clients from Chisec up to the capital, the sales have allowed us to continue operating and learning about regenerative agriculture and sustainable practices to make the work of the Productive House more effective.

The support of our partners from the Population Council and Socialab has been key to the execution of funds and all the progress you can now see. We have achieved our objective on this platform and therefore, we withdraw from it. Showing you our latest achievement; the branding and official image that will represent both our Productive House and our eggs.

Your help is always welcome and necessary to move forward making this dream a success. We thank you for supporting us and we sincerely hope that you can continue to do so, in this way we can fulfill all the goals that lie ahead. We leave our contact here! We would love to continue in communication.

¡Hola! Que alegría nos es compartirles los avances que hemos logrado en el centro, el cual ya no es un sueño sino una realidad y por lo mismo ahora la llamamos casa productiva.  Entre 29 mentoras de Chisec (Alta Verapaz, Guatemala) hemos trabajado para que todo funcione acorde a los planos y nos complace poder enseñarles fotos de todo el progreso que hemos logrado. La casa productiva servirá como un centro para producir, aprender y trabajar.

 

Producimos huevos de gallinas los cuales comercializaremos en los siguientes meses.

 

Aprendemos acerca de agricultura regenerativa ya que también estamos sembrando y generando planes productivos en torno a la agricultura. Aprendemos como alcanzar a mujeres y niñas con habilidades para la vida, conocimientos y practicas en la agricultura. Aprendemos como conectar a niñas en Chisec con la tierra y sus derechos a una vida digna.

 

Trabajamos en la casa productiva que representa un avance importante en la historia de Abriendo Oportunidades®. Esto debido a que es la primera vez que un grupo de mujeres jóvenes participantes del programa inician sus propias labores productivas para generar sus propios medios de vida. Así mismo, porque apoyaran la expansión del programa Abriendo Oportunidades® para alcanzar a más niñas y más comunidades.

 

Pero sobre todo, agradecemos el apoyo de todas las personas que nos han permitido alcanzar estos logros y llegar tan lejos.

Hello! We feel happy to share with you the progress we have achieved in the center, which is no longer a dream but a reality, therefore we have named it productive house. We are a group of 29 mentors from Chisec (Alta Verapaz, Guatemala) that have worked for all of it to work accordingly to the planification and we can gladly show you pictures of the progress we have achieved. The productive house will serve as a center to produce, learn and work

 

Produce chicken eggs that will be commercialized in the coming months.

 

Learn about regenerative agriculture since we are also SEMBRANDO and generating productive plans. We learn how to reach young women and girls with skills, knowledge and farming practices We learn how to connect girls in Chisec, land, and their rights to decent livelihoods to their productive house.

 

We work in the productive housewhichrepresents a landmark achievement in the history of Abriendo Oportunidades®, given that it is the first time that a group of young indigenous women that participated in the program initiate their own productive activities that will sustain their livelihoods and support the expansion of the Abriendo Oportunidades program to reach new girls and new communities.

La tierra es nuestra

 Amigos y amigas para nosotras es un gusto ponernos en comunicación con ustedes de nuevo.

Gracias a sus aportes cada vez vemos más de cerca nuestro sueño y todas las posibilidades que están por crear en nuestras vidas y en la de las niñas.

¡El terreno es nuestro, hemos logrado inscribir legalmente el terreno a nombre de Na’leb’ak!

Como primera fase y pensando en la seguridad y delimitación del terreno, hemos decido cercarlo, sembrando plantas locales, árboles y espinas que nos protegerán y llenarán de vida el lugar.

También nos hemos asegurado de que las personas que nos ayudarán a construir nuestro centro sean las ideales. Por lo mismo, hemos hecho un proceso de reclutamiento y selección y hoy ya tenemos definido a los albañiles, herreros, carpinteros y personas que ayudarán.

Como prioridad tenemos la construcción del gallinero, que se realizará con materiales de la localidad. Las gallinas ya fueron compradas y esperamos recibirlas en unos meses.

Así es como continua la construcción de nuestro centro, nuestro sueño. Con la ayuda de todos y todas ustedes estamos seguras que este llegará mucho más lejos.

Gracias por ayudarnos a cambiar nuestro futuro.

Dear friends it is a pleasure for us to get in touch with you again.

Thanks to your contributions, we increasingly see our dream closer and all the possibilities that are to be created in our lives and in that of girls.

The land is ours, we have legally registered the land in the name of Na’leb’ak!.

As a first phase and thinking about the security and delimitation of the land, we have decided to fence it, planting local plants, trees and thorns that will protect us and fill the place with life.

We have also ensured that the people who will help us build our center are the ideals. For this reason, we have made a recruitment and selection process and today we have defined the masons, blacksmiths, carpenters and people who will help.

As a priority we have the construction of the chicken coop, which will be carried out with local materials. The hens have already been bought and we hope to receive them in a few months.

This is how the construction of our center continues, our dream continues. With the help of all of you, we are sure that it will go much further.

Thank you for helping us change our future.

Hi! Today we are really excited to tell you how we have advanced in the past months. But before, we want to thanks you once again for all your support and because you are making our dreams possible. 

 

We are ensuring the future sustainability and success of the project. We conducted an investigation in 12 communities of Chisec, where we concluded that egg consumption is very strong. This allowed us to deduce that it will be valuable and effective to include in our future center the production of eggs. For this reason, we wanted to know more about the process and visited the center of Santa Polonia where they are currently developing and selling eggs. We left very excited and full of ideas on how to implement our own egg production.

 

We also evaluate with experts possible crops to be sown according to the consumption and land of Chisec. We have obtained a list of 45 possible crops which we will soon reduce to the best options according to price and rapidity of cultivation. These will then be sold to ensure our sustainability but will also serve to create a vivarium that supplies community gardens. We have great ideas and we are preparing ourselves in the best way to make them come true and sustainable through time.

 

Thank you for your support and trust, for being part of this dream.

Hola! Hoy estamos entusiasmadas de contarles como hemos avanzado estos últimos meses. Pero antes, quisiéramos darles gracias una vez más por todo su apoyo, porque permiten hacer posibles nuestros sueños. 

 

Estamos asegurando la futura sostenibilidad y éxito del proyecto. Realizamos una investigación en 12 comunidades de Chisec, donde concluimos que el consumo de huevo es bastante fuerte. Esto nos permitió deducir que será valioso y efectivo incluir en nuestro futuro centro la producción de huevos. Por lo mismo, quisimos conocer más acerca del proceso y visitamos el centro de Santa Polonia donde actualmente desarrollan y venden huevos. Nos quedamos con mucha ilusión e ideas para implementar nuestra propia producción de huevos.  

 

También evaluamos con expertos posibles cultivos a sembrar según el consumo y terreno de Chisec. Hemos obtenido una lista de 45 posibles cultivos los cuales pronto reduciremos a las mejores opciones según precio y rapidez de cultivo. Estos serán luego vendidos para asegurar nuestra sostenibilidad pero también servirán para crear un vivero que abastezca huertos familiares de la comunidad. Tenemos grandes ideas y estamos preparándonos de la mejor manera para hacerlas realidad.

 

Gracias por su apoyo y confianza, por ser parte de este sueño.

Hello everyone, we hope you are all doing great with your everyday tasks. We want to communicate to you that we are one step closer to achieving our dream thanks to the support from you all. You are part of the growth and empowerment of amazing women and girls who now have a clear and bug future in front of them. 

We want to start this post by thanking you all once again for the support and follow up on us. We have big news for you today! We are pleased to announce we are on the final stages of the negotiation to buy Na'leb'ak's terrain. We have carefully selected the land for it to fit perfectly to our plans which includes having a safe space for women and girls to get together, work, plan, create and unite all of their efforts and strength to get ahead of their actual conditions. This means all women and girls will finally have their own place, this amazing space where they can organize and support each other and generate empowerment for themselves and each other. Plus, Na'leb'ak will be able to sustain their work from the incorporation of an agricultural farm where traditional crops will be planted and taken care of. For all of this to be possible, we carefully selected and measured the terrain to fit the needs of Na'leb'ak. It is just because of you we are able to fulfil this dream, so thank you. 

Keep following us towards the final steps in this big acquisition, and the life changing impact it will have for women and girls in Chisec.
