On August 12th we presented our first publication

Handbook cover
Handbook cover

Working sessions for communitarian development is a training handbook which intends to bring together some practical and theoretical tools to form and prepare working groups, specially those of young people. It includes 15 sessions –developed by the Tlalana’s team and revised by some collaborators– based on the Life Skills approach and in Popular education experiences.  With this material the project becomes really a replicable one – the guides can plan the whole process with their groups, from the first approach until the implementation of projects.  We are so enthusiastic on our handbook since it implied almost two years of work and resources from many people!

In the first semester of 2010 we also worked on the creation of new groups. In February we begun a  group with the youngsters who live in the Pro-Niños de la calle (Pro-Kids living on street) transitional house in Mexico City. In the summer months were also opened groups in Xúchitl and Maltrata (Veracruz) and in Tehuacan (Puebla). Likewise we contacted organizations and other actors to train guides in Zacatlán de las manzanas and Ixtacamaxtitlán (Puebla) in the next months. Including these, the project would be carried out with 14 groups and almost 150 promoters in total.

Finally we just want to share a recent video about the work of three groups: Tepeximilpa and "El Chante de Todos" (in Mexico City) and "Tajuco" (Colón, Querétaro). The video is in spanish; find the link below.
