The Children of PROJIMO:
P.R.OJ.I.M.O. - Coyotitan
PROJIMO is the Spanish word for "neighborhood."
Programa de Rehabilitacion Organizado
por Jovenes Incapacitados de
= "Rehabilitation Program Organized by Disabled Youth of Western Mexico".
|PROJIMO "The Project" =
||The rehabilitation program and its workers.
PROJIMO "The Neighborhood" =
The small community of people who live on the PROJIMO grounds, but who do
not necessarily work in "The Project".
|e.g. Rosita, one of the co-founders of the program almost 25 years
ago, lives in the PROJIMO neighborhood, and works in the PROJIMO project.
|My connection to PROJIMO: |
I am married to Marielos, one of the (former) workers in the project.
The name "PROJIMO" also refers to another important aspect of the
program: Community-Based Rehabilitation
The project does not stand apart from the larger village community, but
integrates itself with that community by means of:
- local services where people from far and wide come to PROJIMO;
- community activities where PROJIMO goes out
into the community.
|How this came to be:
|The project in
Ajoya that David Werner wrote about no longer exists.
When the PROJIMO project in Ajoya split up in 1999, part of the
group moved to Coyotitan.
A 2 ha. plot of land was purchased on the outskirts of Coyotitan, which was
then divided in two.
|The one side of the property was reserved for "The Project" and its
|The other side was subdivided further, and the project workers at that
time were given opportunity |
to purchase land to build housing.
