In Tecax, Yucatan, Mexico, Operation Kindness activists have organised into a Colectiva Mujeres (women’s collective) through which local women engage in a range of community mobilisations such as community garden projects, breakfast clubs for school children and yoga and meditation groups.

The Mandala Trust has funded the start-up costs and equipment for Operation Kindness Mexico who have renovated a small building which acts as a community centre from which to offer a range of activities, including regular yoga sessions for mothers and their children and a daily breakfast club which ensures all local children have a nutritious meal before going to school.

The Mandala Trust has also funded a community permaculture project organised by the women of the community through which they teach their children how to cultivate organic food and also provide the community with year-round fresh organic fruit and vegetables grown by the project.
