Casa Grande

This is our community development program, which we implement in the locations where we operate. Find out how it works:

1
We elaborate community diagnoses in which the local population participates.
2
We identify the communities’ needs and expectations.
3
According to the above information, we establish the priority focus of work.
4
Thanks to a team of experts and community volunteers, we develop the projects we design together with our neighbors.
5
In 2015 we counted on the participation of 6, 946 volunteers.

Casa Grande fosters productive projects in the communities, supporting them with financing and training, in order to generate independent jobs. These actions foster diversification and strengthening of the economic activities that make it possible to raise the population’s quality of life.

Virtuous Women

A Group of 10 women who teach other women to weave regional costumes from the Tehuantepec Isthmus.

“Our Family, our traditions, the desire to teach and learn, but above all, the wish to help in the home, are the reasons why we began this project two years ago. Thanks to Casa Grande, we have learned many things, such as being honest and not always receiving but also learning to give to become self-sufficient. Casa Grande is not only an aid, but it has become a part of our lives and our families”.

Elizabeth Valdivieso, weaver.

Bakery

Preparation of different flavors of cakes and innovative designs, fine pastries, croissants, waffles, and cookies.

It is a great satisfaction to know that many of my former students have begun their own business. It feels nice when people tell them that what they prepared is delicious. Being in Casa Grande is a very nice experience, because they help the students to become known through their new skills, delighting the pallets of our community. Thank you very much for allowing me to be part of this great place”.

Carmen Rodríguez, instructor.

Through Casa Grande, we also launch invitations so community organizations can present their own projects and obtain financing to set them in motion. The projects are evaluated by the Community Committees, organizations with a mixed composition, where both Grupo Mexico and the community participate.
