Game Changer Flavia: Enabling Mexico's Disabled Through 'Pina Palmera'
go to original
September 22, 2015
Disability is a sensitive topic in Mexico. Lack of infrastructure and government programs make everyday life a challenge — especially in rural and indigenous communities.
The organization “Piña Palmera” has become a pioneer for the rights of people with disabilities. For the last 30 years it has offered support, education, and therapy for disabled people of all ages in the Mexican state of Oaxaca.
Flavia Anau is the heart of the organization and works to help recipients attain a new and self-sufficient life. “Pina Palmera” also runs an environmental program which teaches recycling and organic farming – both relatively unknown topics in Mexico.
