A One Corner sighting

November 11th, 2010

Well that was a longer hiatus than I was expecting. Got tangled up in the process of getting our federal non-profit status. Have to reapply but have been learning a lot about what we need to do and looking for some counsel to increase our chances when we try again.

In the meantime, have been writing to the community development director of a tiny municipality in Aguascalientes regarding a housing project that they were running. It looks like it’s nearly finished but they have some new projects next year that I will be finding out more about.

As well, have been connecting with two other non-profits in Mexico: Kalli-Timochiasque and PVO. The first focuses on medical and health issues in small indigenous communities in Puebla, while PVO has refocused their organization to working specifically with children. They are currently builidng library/literacy centres also in small rural communities. We are looking into some partnership possibilities with either or both of them.

My goal is to go on a quick exploratory trip in the beginning of 2011 and set up a project for the summer. I will be updating more regularly again!
