Integral Community Development Program

The FHMM program is a holistic intervention model with 2 transverse axes: Human Development and Natural Resources, –which are present throughout all the model, defining the participation's methodology, and 4 strategic lines: Health and Nutrition, Education and Culture, Housing and Infrastructure, and Social Enterprises . The Integral Community Development Program integrates the participation of communities’ inhabitants and local capacity building. How? By creating a suitable context to successfully organize and manage the initiatives, promote spaces for self-expression and the exercise of freedom, so that personal fulfillment and social capital building can be achieved.

FHMM facilitators meet with residents of the communities to present the model, the action programs, experiences and best practices. Then, based on self-diagnosis and necessities, the projects that need to be implemented in the community are defined and designed.

Since 2002, we work to improve the living conditions of rural Mayan communities in the Yucatán Peninsula. Based on the methodology of grassroots development –our guiding principles, we design and implement projects that promote human development through capacity building and local population's empowerment.

Capacity building and empowerment constitute the basis that makes possible to create sustainable projects. To achieve that, self-management and successful management of local initiatives are essential.

We prioritize the creation of networks among the communities' grassroots groups. Sharing experiences  leads to a collectively generated systematization of knowledge, which allows to document the learning process as well as to strengthen the initiatives from the local level.

Our projects are based on 4 strategic lines: Health, Housing and Infrastructure, Education, and Social Enterprises. Projects from each strategic line are articulated around two transversal axes: respect and sustainable use of Natural Resources, and Human Development for capacity building.
