Finalizing 2017: Medicial plants project
During 2017, the group of women from Tonchintlán, who has produced remedies with medicinal plants for more than 5 years, and the newly formed group from Ixcotitlán, were accompanied with several activities. The work dynamics of these groups took a considerable turn during this year, because the main promoter of the groups left the region. For this reason, it was essential to support both groups by encouraging teamwork, self-organization and, initiating them into the management of their resources to give a continuous production of their remedies. It is important to mention, the valuable participation that other groups have had by joining our work, sharing their experiences, their challenges, and the way in which they have solved different situations. This has been crucial for the women's groups of Ixcotitlán and Tonchintlán to know other forms of organized and collective work.
