- To promote an active diagnosis post-disaster in the school communities affected.
- Implementing reconstruction actions in the schools affected through the Tools for Knowledge Program by Fondo Unido–United Way México.
- Presenting actions that promote a focused participation on prevention and natural disaster attention in the affected school communities.
- Creating a trained culture to react to natural disasters in Mexico.
Active diagnosis post-disaster: This is done with the support of a multi-disciplinary team of experts in the school communities affected by the earthquakes that fulfill the necessary requirements.
- Geo-analysis: Consists on locating the communities affected by earthquakes and create a space analysis tool to focus attention in order to have:
- An overall-map of the affected communities.
- A communities-to-attend map
- A priority framework and parameters.
- Reconstruction actions, manteinance and school infrastructure equipment that will take place through the Tools for Knowledge program by Fondo Unido-United Way México.
- Informed volunteer activities: This is an aspect that needs to be considered in order to give continuity long-term and set the basis for its trascendence.
For years, Fondo Unido-United Way México has actively responded to natural emergencies in our country. Since 2017, an Emergency Fund with focus on reconstruction was established.
Some emergencies we have attended are:
- 2011– “Karl” Hurricane: We concluded the Classroom Reconstruction Project in the state of Veracruz. This project was done in collaboration with the institution called “Adopta una Escuela”, benefitting more than 1,650 children between 3 and 15 years old and indirectly over 10,000 people between students and teachers in later generations.
- 2013– Tropical Storms “Ingrid y Manuel”: We did the reconstruction of the primary school called Cuitláhuac, in Coyuca de Benítez, Guerrero for all six grades using eco-technologies for the wiring and bathrooms of the school. This building can now serve as a shelter in case of a natural disaster. This project benefitted 128 students and 600 families indirectly.
- 2017– Tropical Storm “Beatriz”: We supported the landslide emergency after “Beatriz” hit ground and affected 127 municipalities in Oaxaca. Hygiene kits were donated by P&G as well as drinkable water, blankets and clothes. Also, we supported in bringing psychological support and medical services in coordination with CADENA.
