Who we are

Who we are

We define ouselves as community builders. A community builder is someone who, instead of offering provisional help, gets to know a community and its people, its weaknesses and strengths. In this way, we build a strong relationship with each community. A relationship that lasts a life time.

Let’s talk about soft skills: Responsibility

Let’s talk about soft skills: Responsibility

 Why is responsibility a soft skill? What does it mean? To be responsible is actually an ability. It's the ability to assume one’s own actions and to be accountable for them.

Let’s talk about soft skills: Learning to learn

Every soft skill requires a deep reflection on ourselves. Learning to learn involves being aware of how and why we acquire, process, and memorize knowledge. Once we understand that, we can analyze and choose the learning method and environment that suits us best.

Let’s talk about soft skills: Learning to learn⠀ Every soft skill requires a deep reflection on ourselves. Learning to learn involves being aware of how and why we acquire, process, and memorize knowledge. Once we understand that, we can analyze and choose the learning method and environment that suits us best.⠀ Learning to learn makes visible the fact that we don’t learn in the same ways, that there are different learning methods, and that we need to respect that. ⠀ Why is it important? If we better understand our ways of learning, we can achieve our goals more effectively. To develop learning to learn as a skill, it is necessary to reflect and be part of experiences that allow us to know ourselves even more. ⠀ When we set ourselves goals, we must analyze the ways to reach them. This requires a reflection on our ways of learning and acting, along with an understanding of the ways of learning from others. Therefore, we believe it's important to set goals when volunteering. ⠀ Understanding more about learning to learn, as well as other soft skills in a volunteer experience, helps us see that volunteering is not a superficial experience. Volunteering immerses us in the need to know ourselves better and to think about others. It also includes developing new skills and being aware of other skills that we may not have known about ourselves.⠀ ⠀ https://bit.ly/3dxJDEO

In the last few weeks, Comunidad Pacheco conducted a social survey in one of the communities where we daily build community and popular economy.⠀ ⠀ The idea comes from understanding the need to generate strategies of community organization and communication, as well as to constitute links with the diverse programs of the state, and to make visible the demands, ideas, and proposals of the neighbors in view of the current COVID-19 situation. We believe that it is necessary to ask the community their problems and include them in the search for solutions. Neighbors have proposals and ideas for themselves and their communities that are not contemplated.⠀ ⠀ The survey covers the following thematic areas:⠀ ⠀ - Food situation.⠀ ⠀ - Economic income.⠀ ⠀ - State aid.⠀ ⠀ - Media used for information.⠀ ⠀ - Access to health and education.⠀ ⠀ - Economic situation and alternatives⠀ ⠀ Our survey was conducted virtually (20%) and in-person (80%) to 215 people over 18 years. The face-to-face surveys were carried out on public roads, as well as in community spaces that have just been opened to neighbors, picnic areas, canteens, Health Centre (vaccination). ⠀ All the surveys were carried out by members of the Pacheco Community.⠀ We believe in the need to establish and sustain work networks between the neighborhood and municipal organizations, to articulate roles and tasks and to share experiences as the only way for our community to be an active part of the design, execution, and realization of the solution to their demands and the construction of popular power. This survey is a tool that we make available to any territorial organization that believes it is useful for its community as well as the data provided by it.⠀ https://bit.ly/2NoEfZG

THE VOICE OF OUR PEERS: CHAPTER SEVEN⠀ ANALIA' S REFLECTIONS⠀ "LOVE IN TIMES OF QUARANTINE"⠀ Love in times of quarantine is never losing love for each other...⠀ Love your children so you can help them with their homework. Getting up early to start the day and spending time playing with them.⠀ Loving your parents to accompany them from far or near.⠀ Helping them with their shopping, with the things they don't understand, like getting an internet driving license, learning English, or helping them make homemade bread. Also, if they are not around, call them so that they do not feel alone.⠀ Love your friends and instead of getting together, make a video call, greet them on their birthdays through a phone call, letting them know that you are still far away.⠀ Love your partner to take care of her or simply give her space. Put up with every day of the week without seeing that special person and if you have them with you every day, do new and different things every day.⠀ Loving yourself, to get to know you, learn new things, and enjoy every minute of the day discovering you.⠀ It is to meet every member of the family at home.⠀ It is taking care of yourself and others.⠀ It is feeling empathy for every citizen outside of your environment.⠀ For many it is difficult to do these things, it is easier to work or to be studying all day. Many only see the bad side of this as the disease, the economy, among other things. But it's also good to stop and think about others, not only your loved ones but also those you don't know and who are going through the same thing.⠀ ⠀ https://bit.ly/3dopl0q

Since the pandemic began, we have all needed to rethink the ways in which we act and adapt to the new circumstances. The English project continues to work with students in a virtual way with online classes, which implies a great effort from all the teachers to reassemble the classes, but also for the children and parents to do their homework and have the necessary technological devices available. We share one of the homework that the children have done during this quarantine to make visible all the work behind the classes on video call ✊⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #teachingenglish #onlinevolunteering #voluntarioglobal
