FRAMEWORK FOR LIBERATION

The following approaches and methods guide our effort:

Gender Perspective

We look at the reality taking into account the gender dynamics and power relations that are reproduced at different levels of culture. We seek to transform relationships through specific projects that promote equity, social justice, diversity, democratic participation and solidarity coexistence.


Popular education

We recognize the experience of life as a valuable source of knowledge and learning; we promote peer education and critical and liberating thinking. We encourage the use of participatory techniques for reflection, decision-making and the construction of power. We understand that learning is mutual between who facilitates and who participates, and that it is a dynamic process and in constant development.


Public Health approach

We recognize the right to health of all people. We promote healthy and violence-free environments. We defend access to services, informed decision-making and self-care. We work for a better quality of life for our communities that considers economic, cultural and environmental aspects as social determinants of health.


Transdisciplinary work

We combine several disciplines, transversally, to deepen critical thinking and generate multiple alternatives.


Intergenerational work

We facilitate the construction of bridges that allow for a continuous exchange of knowledge between generations to strengthen the indispensable social capital for a just and inclusive future.


Emancipatory work

We work in a conscious and rebellious way against all forms of oppression and violence. We promote reflection on the use and abuse of power and promote spaces for participation and justice.


Permanent dialog

We promote open, sustained and free communication channels as a core element of our service model.
 


Use of art, play and recreation

We believe that through art, play and recreation we can promote transformative experiences that encourage learning, develop new behavioral references and reinforce values of well-being and justice.
