“It’s been a slow process, and I’m on it. I don’t get compassion fatigue.”
In this part 3 of Julia’s conversation with Michelle Manjarrez, we speak about her necessity to support the local, Mexican village and empower these people, especially through a Women’s Cooperative.
Michelle has been supporting the local Mayan community for the last three years and shares some of the challenges, such as “compassion fatigue” of some of her collaborators, and the literal survival struggles with food, health, and violence that the community is facing.
Together, Michelle and Julia look at these issues under the perspective of Gameworld building: How to distil the bigger purpose, Empowerment, and Winning Happening.
