Lot Delivery in Costa de Caborca
As part of our social commitment and community development, Fundación Bórquez delivered 400 lots for housing construction in the community of La Y Griega, municipality of Caborca in the state of Sonora.
In the presence of the State’s Governor, municipal authorities, beneficiaries and the community in general, they witnessed a transcendental act. "It's a long-awaited dream, and today we watch it come true, thanks to the participation of many people and years of management", words expressed by Pablo Bórquez Almada, President of the Bórquez Schwarzbeck Foundation. He added: "This does not end here. We are already working to find and have the necessary support for construction credits", and invited the authorities to continue supporting the community.
This event was not just a formal act. Each of the beneficiaries was given his corresponding deed, totally free of encumbrance. Now the beneficiaries have the certainty of having a heritage.
The complex is an integral project where the driving force of social development is the Community Center that Fundación Bórquez Schwarzbeck operates in the community of Costa de Caborca. A project with a vision for the future with a high impact for the community.
CULTURAL WEEK "ITOM NAWAM"
Itom Nawam, which in the Yaqui language means "Our Roots", represents the cultural space of the Bórquez Schwarzbeck Foundation, aimed precisely to the promotion of the preservation of the different cultural manifestations that have characterized our communities.
During the first week of november of each year, a series of events is organized, ranging from lectures, painting workshops, dance, music, ceramics, photographic exhibitions, gastronomic samples, and musical concerts, which have positioned the event as the annual cultural reference in the Yaqui Valley. The main venue of the event is the Community Center of the Foundation itself, in addition to alternate venues in schools of nearby communities. This has allowed to reach a greater approach and therefore acceptance of the event.
With events of this nature, Fundación Bórquez Schwarzbeck seeks to generate an integral development within the communities it serves, trying to generate it through a change, recognizing in people its initiative, hope, effort, generating opportunities and above all sensitive to their needs. This is how, in addition to enhancing their development and working and learning skills, they offer the possibility of growing up knowing and developing their sensitivity for our cultural roots.
The end of the school year holiday arrived, and with it the opportunity for spending time together, learning and having fun.... !!
Each year at the end of the school courses, Fundación Bórquez Schwarzbeck provides children and young people the opportunity to take part in its summer camps, where fun and coexistence are promoted, complemented with various training topics. This is with no doubt the opportunity to learn while playing.
The commitment to grow and provide year after year better options for the participants has led us to transport these events to other areas. This is how, from the year 2018, we were in charge of the recreational area of the summer camp of the Center of Culture of the Yaqui Tribe in Potam, Sonora.
In their activities schedule, workshops and complementary actions aimed at inculcating an aspirational attitude prevail, leading the participants to learn a wider spectrum of the diverse opportunities to which they can access with dedication and effort. That is why, as part of the activities, visits to universities, work centers, sports stadiums, museums, libraries and everything that might arouse the interest of improvement are scheduled.
Sports represent in Fundación Bórquez Schwarzbeck one of its operational plans of action, and throughout the year, sporting activities are present in its fields and tracks with the most popular sports, either through its schools, or with the participation in leagues and tournaments, but always promoting sports as a training mean of competition and discipline.
These activities are culminated with two massive sporting events: "The Great Sports Olympiad” and the “Athletic Day". In both events the participation of the different school centers of the communities in which we impart our programs is promoted, and it even serves as a place where talent hunters from regional universities can come look for future talent, and the participants have the opportunity to aspire to a sports scholarship.
To give us a clearer idea of what these jousts are, if we add the total participation, we would reach a population superior to the 2,500 athletes that come from the 50 communities that we impact with our programs in both Community Centers.
The jousts represent an organizational challenge, ranging from the promotion, logistics, transfer and competition. In this last matter, without a doubt, the participation of students and the teachers council of ITSON's degree in physical exercise, is what lets us endorse in a professional manner global trademarks and results, which makes us measure and evaluate results just after just, and this is the goal to beat in the next event.
