Our project aims to strengthen and promote the culture of indigenous peoples in Mexico.
From the year 2013, one of our Center’s major tasks has been to accompany and defend the human rights of thousands of indigenous farmworkers, mostly from the Mixteca region, who every season migrate to here to work in farms under exploitation, precarious, unhealthy and overcrowded housing conditions.
One of the biggest challenges was to reduce the cultural shock to indigenous families caused by urban society, for this reason and with the aim to avoid the paternalism, we directed our efforts to accompaniment to design together with our beneficiaries autonomic, self-managed empowering processes in topics related to human rights, housing, health, education, culture and human development.
As a result we built a temporary shelter where indigenous people are welcome and receive support during their process of adaptation to the urban environment.
Centro de Desarrollo Indígena Loyola was founded in 1998, its precedent was the Indigenous Day-Care Center Loyola DIF-Ibero, which was created to provide care to children while their parents were selling their handcrafts in the streets.
