Nieves Figueroa Basurto, Facilitator

Nieves Figueroa Basurto takes notes during a household dialogue visit
in Acapulco.

I feel very good working in the colony, supporting the brigadistas when they perform household visits and leaving information about the project… I’ve learned a lot with the brigadistas, I have learned to be patient along with them; we have formed a tight-knit group and are working for the community’s interest.

The change I have noticed in the colony is that people no longer dump garbage in the street. People are very interested by the project, because some of them don’t know where the mosquitoes reproduce and are surprised when we explain how the life cycle works… people are already applying the information supplied to them by the brigadistas.
