Our primary project partner
Comunidad A.C., our project partner in Cuernavaca, is one of seventeen community foundations in Mexico. As a community foundation their role is to convene and coordinate of the diverse sectors of civil society and government. They could be thought of as catalysts of unified action by drawing together sectors of society that usually do not communicate with each other in a collegial and collaborative fashion.
Often they see the world from such different viewpoints that it is difficult for them to understand each other. Comunidad becomes the interpreter that helps communication flow and facilitates constructive planning and carry-through of projects for the common good. Karitas and Comunidad have forged a wonderfully creative, dynamic and effective partnership.
