Some of you may remember our Buenas Obras project, in which we are solving problems our neighborhood desperately needs (trash, graffiti, lighting) using a resource we happen to have in excess (donated goods).
And one of the beautiful things about Esperanza is that our neighbors – all skills and backgrounds – are always looking to help.
So it was with great honor and excitement that in looking to develop the Buenas Obras concept further, we were approached by a team from the CMK Department of Procter & Gamble who found the project well…confoundingly exciting.
First, over some coffee, our P&G experts did a test survey with Alexis Quintero of Servicios Elektron (below).
The survey that we’d be giving to local neighbors was designed to understand things like:
Here are some photos of their afternoon of interviews:
One of our helpers even got to bump into Jaffet of the now-famous Fortaleza Tours and ask him for some feedback:
Of course, we always learn lots from visits of experts like the folks from P&G.
But interestingly enough, almost all of them felt inspired by the afternoon themselves: excited about what more we can do as a neighborhood using the Buenas Obras platform. We look forward to sharing our results and next steps forward.
