Challenge

In 2017, Oaxaca (Mexico) was hit by an 8.2 degrees earthquake which provoked catastrophic losses in the region. In Niltepec (Oaxaca), 105 women and their families who support themselves by producing and selling corn totopos, lost their kitchens and their ovens totally or partially due to this earthquake. This kitchens were their basic tool and main source of employement and with the lost of them, these women now live in an extreme poverty situation.

Solution

This Project will help to redisign and rebuild 20 kitchens with their respective ovens and cookers so that these women can make an economic comeback with the production of their corn totopos with better spaces and safer conditions to protect their health. Rebuilding this spaces will recquire a participatory process in which the women, alongside with arquitects and engineers, will design their own kitchens considering their own specific needs.

Long-Term Impact

This Project will help 20 women to get their jobs back and make profits again. This can be achieved by rebuilding their kitchens and ovens and with this, improve their life quality as well as their families and community. We will help a whole community to regain their economy and productivity.
