Madre Tierra México (MTM) is an organization that since 1997 began to walk together with indigenous, peasant, worker and popular organizations of the state of Chiapas, Mexico and Guatemala, to work in the construction of Good Living for all.
From their hearts they see the construction of a better world, where all human beings live in peace between theirselves and with Mother Earth .
In MTM they visualize that the social and political formation, the technical and human training, the intergenerational dialogue, the awareness of their reality, the strengthening of their self-esteem and ethnic, cultural, sexual and gender identities, are the basis for the construction of more just, inclusive, plural and peaceful societies, based on Good Living.
Unite their hands and hearts, minds and resources to strengthen the self-esteem and social and individual capacities of women, men, children, young people, the elderly and sectors of vulnerable population for the construction of a dignified life, care of the body and territories, the defense of Human Rights (economic, political, social, cultural, environmental, sexual and spiritual) and with it, improve the living conditions in an integral way, among theirselves, their families and communities.
At MTM they believe that the organizations and communities made up of women and men, elderly people, young people and children, which they accompany, are responsible for the transformation of their reality, since they have the potential to do so, only who have denied them the opportunities to develop their capacities.
Therefore, their main objective is to provide tools (training, training, materials and economic resources) to their partners that allow them to build, search and promote viable solutions adapted to their reality. Their work focuses primarily on the formation and training of promoters, community organization, as well as the coordination and generation of alliances between organizations.
They have four programs for sustainable self-development: Community Health, Food Sovereignty, Healthy Housing, Human Rights and Solidarity Actions, in which women, men, youth, children and the elderly participate to improve their living conditions and work in the construction of worthy and self-sufficient strategies for Good Living .
