Summary

This project aims to strengthen the support networks that are built through links with more than 36 organizations, indigenous communities and Mexican and international volunteers who live in Casa Junax and contribute their time, knowledge, and professional skills throughout the duration of the project. These committed people provide affected groups with the necessary resources to defend their human rights.

Challenge

The lack of attention and political will on the part of the Mexican goverment has led to violations of the human rights of communities and indigenous populations in Chiapas. This goverment has neglected the historical demands and needs of such populations: acces to land, shelter, work, education, health, and peace. Such neglect has perpetuated the inequality gap between sectors of the population.

Solution

Strengthening this network among volunteers, organizations, and communities will help solve the aforementioned challenges. These local organizations and communities are benefited by the support of committed people who are involved in social causes through the contribution of their support, work, skills, and professional and technical knowledge, and who help to transform lives in said communities through the specific projects in which they participate.

Long-Term Impact

The solidarity network has been built over the twenty years of Junaxs existence and remains strong with the continuing support of more than 36 organizations in Chiapas. Above all, a major impact of the project will be the continued growth of demand of volunteers. These volunteers, from all over the world, get involved with socially-oriented projects designed to effectively secure community-led development, food and economic sovereignty, gender equality, and land defense among other goals.
