A ONG Ch´ieltik realiza um trabalho excelente, com uma equipe bárbara em um local com boa infraestrutura. Adorei o convívio com os integrantes da equipe, a visita às escolas para realizar as oficinas de gênero com os jovens e o contato com os integrantes, na maioria mulheres, do Centro de Apoio à Mulher. Como meu tempo de estadia era curto, fiquei com uma sensação de ter contribuído pouco com os projetos. Senti falta de um plano que envolva melhor os voluntários e aproveite os conhecimentos que eles possuem, desde a sua chegada. Mas fiquei com vontade de voltar. Recomendo!

Sin ninguna duda recomendaría está experiencia. El equipo es muy atento y amable, las actividades con los jóvenes es un trabajo muy bonito y enriquecedor. Las Margaritas es un lugar preciso rodeado de naturaleza donde puedes descansar y disfrutar.

Paloma fue una voluntaria ejemplar para la organización, siempre con toda la disposición para colaborar con las actividades del equipo, buscando la manera de aportar desde su conocimiento y área de estudio e inclusive asumiendo otras tareas y responsabilidades en momentos donde el equipo necesitó apoyo o se vio rebasado por la carga de trabajo. Destacamos su disposición para apoyar a la integración y adaptación de otras voluntarias, y su capacidad de adaptación a las distintas condiciones del trabajo y las comunidades, que le permitieron el reconocimiento y estima del equipo de trabajo y de las y los jóvenes de las comunidades que aún hoy en día preguntan por ella.
En suma, puedemos decir que nos gustaría poder contar con más voluntarias y voluntarios como Paloma y que es una persona sumamente recomendable para asumir un puesto de trabajo o aportar como voluntaria a otras organizaciones y proyectos. Le agradecemos de todo corazón el tiempo que pudo dedicar a IDEAS-Ch'ieltik, siempre reconociendo y poniendo en alto nuestro trabajo y el nombre de la organización, y le deseamos el mayor de los éxitos en los proyectos y actividades que vengan para ella. Esperamos poder recibirla pronto de nuevo en México para seguir colaborando.
