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.

Navigating the Pandemic: Silvia's Testimony

Social isolation keeps us apart, but the network is still active. We are talking with all the local coordinators to see how they are doing and how they see their community nowadays. Listening to the different voices in the network is part of thinking together.

Is online volunteering here to stay?

 With problems and solutions, virtuality has accelerated with the pandemic and lockdowns around the world. Within volunteering, we have worked virtually mainly in communications and teaching English. Today we want to reflect on and share this experience.

Social isolation keeps us apart, but the network is still active. We are talking with the local coordinators to see how they are doing and how they see their community nowadays. Listening to the different voices in the network is part of thinking together. Today we share some of Silvia's thoughts: she is the founder of one of the English institutes. ⠀ ⠀ Silvia is a person who always goes forward no matter what, with an optimistic vision, teamwork, and a lot of effort. Silvia highlighted the presence of the State as financial aid in times of pandemic and the positive impact it had to sustain families and their projects. At the same time, she spoke about the emergence of community micro-businesses facilitated by this economic aid as a way to face the reality in which we live. ⠀ ⠀ "Regarding the families, although we have those who are in a dependent working relationship, many have had their hours shortened, there were no labor negotiations for the majority, but it was very much equated with the help of the government. All workers receive help from the government, so the reality I see in the families is that they have used the money to keep up with school, to start their own businesses in the houses, they have their small businesses, they buy clothes to resell. They are doing a good job fighting it, they told me: "We don't have a full-time job or labor negotiations, but we have government help," and it shows. I have a family, for example, he's a painter, she works in cleaning, and with the help of the government, the five of them were able to study: the father, the mother, and the three children. That's a positive thing because the government is present in the families, I'm talking about a sector of working people where there is a majority of independent workers."⠀ ⠀ She also talked about working in the virtual world, how children adapt, and the new dynamic with parents. ⠀ ⠀ "As for us, it's not the same as being present, we try to be positive and transmit it to the kids. Trying to set up a study place, the parents try to set up their space so they can study there. We keep trying to keep the routine as if they were in the classroom... ⠀ ⠀ https://bit.ly/366g6lA

#TBT to the soup kitchen before the pandemic 🤗⠀ Besides new habits and protocols, the happiness of the women at the community kitchen remains, we can feel it through the face masks. In the photo is Lidia representing the feeling of welcome that one feels when entering the community center. I don't think anyone who knows her would disagree with this. In times like these, where we talk about protocols and duties, it is important to rescue the human value and what each person gives for their community. ⠀ 👇What's your favorite moment in the soup kitchen?

Muralism makes the walls talk✊⠀ Muralism is not only an artistic expression, but it also has a strong communicative potential, in fact, it is one of the oldest forms of expression. ⠀ Murals display artistic and reflective skills. They give identity to places and often seek to be a factor in social awareness. Its communitarian aspect is often left aside and that is why it is important to recuperate it. ⠀ The mural of Comunidad Pacheco reflects the values of agro-ecology and food sovereignty. It highlights the exchange of knowledge, whether it be technical and scientific expertise, such as that learned by our ancestors and in practice itself. ⠀ Likewise, it seeks to promote solidarity and popular economy, with short, direct, and fair distribution chains. Guaranteeing transparency between producers and consumers, thus achieving a fair price.⠀ Always preserving and respecting nature. Knowing that we are part of it and it is Mother Earth who provides us with life.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #foodsovereignty #communitydevelopment #muralism
