Our story

Project: No Hunger, No Violence

 

What will we do?

With the construction of this community soup kitchen, we hope to create and train a network of women from the community Prados 3rd section, to provide food security to the elderly, people in conditions of poverty and to those who are marginalized in their community with the objective of reducing violence in their community.

 

Why does this matter?

Violence against women is a phenomenon that has increased in recent years in San Luis Potosí and in Mexico, it is important to prevent and address the problem by addressing its origins. We want to include the participation of the community to improve coexistence and develop resilience and empowerment in the population.

 

Context

Since 2017, San Luis Potosí has positioned itself on the list of the 100 municipalities with the highest number of femicides and sexual violence against women. This is why on June 21 of that same year, an Alert on Gender Violence against Women was declared.

To the east of the City of San Luis Potosí the neighborhoods Prados 2nd and 3rd  section, El Palmar, Cecilia Ocelli, Azteca and Ciudad 2000, are just some of the neighborhoods with the highest degree of marginalization and poverty, which coincides with the areas greater incidence in delinquency and violence against women.

Overcrowding, precariousness, lack of opportunities, are some of the conditions that lead the population to participate in illicit activities as an alternative for subsistence. The population of youth that participates in gangs are not only marginalized by the structures of the government, but by the population that sees youth as a potential threat.

One of the most prevalent crimes in the aforementioned neighborhoods is robbery (residential break-ins and muggings), with women being the main victims. The foregoing led us to analyze the origins of crime, coming to the conclusion that these crimes are related to poverty and addictions; that is, people who commit robberies do so to obtain an economic resource that they use to buy inhaling drugs (glue, solvents, etc.), which they consume in order to mitigate hunger.

 

“Solvents disinhibit you, make you forget. They take away the cold, the hunger and it is very economical. 

Based on drugs, one survives emotionally to an indigence full of aggressions, violence and neglect.”

 

What will we achieve?

With the construction of the community dining room in the neighborhood Prados 3rd section, we will be able to provide food security for people in conditions of indigence, marginalization and poverty. Not only those who are prone to commit crimes because of hunger, but also the elderly who do not have sufficient income to satisfy their basic needs.

Not only those who are prone to commit crimes because of hunger, but also the elderly who do not have sufficient income to satisfy their basic needs.

The cafeteria will promote social cohesion in the community, benefiting more than 6 neighborhoods and serving as a strategy to prevent violence and delinquency in the community as a unique approach to reduce drug consumption and consequently violence and crime in the community.

Note: The dining room will be built in a community space that has sufficient area and has been authorized for use in the project.

 

What amount do we need and what will it be used for?

The goal is to raise at least 4,200.00 USD (approximately 84,000.00 MXN) to acquire enough equipment and furniture to create the community dining room that has the capability of serving 300 people daily at the least.

With donations we will acquire the following:

  • Industrial grill
  • Refrigerator
  • Sink
  • Preparation table
  • Large pots and pans
  • Cookware.
  • Tables and chairs.
  • Pantry stock with basic food.

What more can you do to help?
