El proyecto para la autonomía indígena

Chiapas, México 2002-2004

During SAL's conversations with many local NGOs, leaders lamented that many indigenous families were living and working on the streets of their cities, but they didn't know how to work with them. Melel Xojobal was created to respond to exactly this issue, so we collaborated with them to create a curriculum on indigenous education.
