Support Promoter Workshops
Zapatista community educators are called promotores, or promoters. They are volunteer teachers who specialize in areas such as sustainable agriculture, carpentry, breadmaking, and healthcare. Through the promotor workshops, most of which are taught by other Zapatistas themselves, these educators learn their trade, and through the autonomous Zapatista education system and workshops they teach their students in these different areas. The promoters are chosen by their communities, and often in the educational process they mix innovative and new ideas with traditional methods and practices, creating a truly autonomous, cultural and community-based educational structure.
Your gift to support promoter workshops will go towards training these Zapatista educators, and providing them with much needed materials and supplies.
