Partnering for Empowerment

Word spreads. Communities hear about Karitas’ commitment to nurturing community solidarity, offering resources for families and children, encouraging community-initiated program development and they come seeking our guidance.  We worked for four years in Texcal, a community on the edge of Cuernavaca, as they generated a waste management process that actually became income-producing; started “gratisferias” (“free fairs,”weekly gatherings where people bring items they no longer need and shop for items they do need, except it’s all free!); developed various gardening formats that produced vegetables and fruit, as well as medicinal herbs; learned to cultivate indigenous mushrooms they package and sell; rehabilitated a swimming pool at a defunct water park.
