Abstract

In 2017, an earthquake devastated several communities in the rural regions of Oaxaca. This disaster hit especially the women who made totopos, who lost their kitchens and ovens, their essential tools for work and their livelihood. Cooperación Comunitaria A.C. has carried out a reconstruction project that uses traditional construction techniques, especially the bahareque cerén technique, involving the local population in its development. This initiative allowed not only for the recovery of the material and economic conditions of the communities affected, but also the exchange of know-how and expertise.
