"And there comes a day when you hear yourself talking like her, cooking like her, scolding like her, singing like her, teaching like her, dancing like her, writing like her, crying like her.
And there comes a day when those giant shoes that you tried so much are worth you, and you can walk her footprint.
And with each step you understand everything you ever criticized.
And you understand the limits, the challenges, the anger, the worries, the fears.
And you appreciate that she was there, accompanying you closely, caring, watching.
And you appreciate their efforts, their sacrifices, their time.
There comes a day when you look in the mirror and see her.
Because a few months we were inside her but she will always be inside us; as we all be inside Mother Nature".

What is CEAI?
The special needs school here by popularly referred as Escuelita was first runned as an
Equine therapy center.
The Equine Therapy Center of Playa Del Carmen AC was initiated by the concern of
some parents of children with disabilities interested in rehabilitating and improving the
quality of life of their children.
The Center was formed on March 18, 2008, for children and youth with physical injuries
and physical disabilities, mental, sensory. For this, the parents were trained and learned
to ride and work on horses in order to help children with Equine therapies.
There are two mothers who have been trained by APAC (Association for People with
Cerebral Palsy, located in the Federal District) and three professional therapist working
at the center.
From 2015 the Equine therapy development into other therapies like aqua, occupational,
dog, physical and music therapy.
Which led to having a center in 2010 where by kids can receive formal education and most of the therapies in one place taking into account their needs.
The schools runs from Monday to Friday and they have an average of 12 kids. Before the kids are enrolled they are evaluated by professional therapist to determine what best suits them.
The school have a yearly organized lessons and therapies according to the different
abilities their alumni have
What activities do we offer?
As a community based Organisation we try to do the best to our alumni with the available resources we have.
The alumni’s re attended by professional teachers who lead different therapies according to the needs of the kids. The teachers make sure they have one on one time with the alumni’s to cover on whatever they little points or activities they had missed during the regular classes.
Music therapy:They use music and acoustic stimuli, generating a sensory experience that will allow students to develop emotional, social and psycho-physiologically.
Dog therapy: Therapy that involves animals as a form of treatment. The goal is to improve a patient’s social, emotional, or cognitive functioning. Advocates state that dogs can be useful for educational and motivational effectiveness for participants.
Aquatic therapy: Aquatic therapy refers to water-based treatments or exercises of
therapeutic intent of rehabilitation. Treatments and exercises are performed while floating, partially submerged, or fully submerged in water.
Aquatic therapy procedures require constant attendance by a trained therapist, and are performed in a pool. Rehabilitation commonly focuses on improving the physical function associated with illness, injury, or disability.
For some genuine reasons the school has stopped conducting this therapy. The director of the school is finding ways to resume the aquatic therapy.
Occupational therapy: This refers to a form of therapy for those recuperating from physical or mental illness that encourages rehabilitation through the performance of activities required in daily life.
The teachers conduct daily activities like what day is today, kind of weather (sunny, cloudy, rainy etc.).
The teachers try to focus on the daily activities and making efforts on how the kids can earn a job in future. The professional therapist also focus on encouraging the kids to be more independent.
Our main goal to regulate and protect by law the waters of the planet, we became part of the Ancestral Aquifer Alliance, "AAA" to be part and promoters of the declaration of the decalogue for the preservation of the aquifer, hand by hand with international organizations that do care about the underground water.
The AAA, brings to the table the perception from the Ancestral and Sacred point of view of our waters as part of our living Mother Nature.
To contribute to the principle that "for a people who do not know their past their future becomes uncertain", workshop "La Raíz" presents the pedagogical program "Learning with the hands".
That he makes a general tour through the history of culture and art using creative techniques. Through playful activities chronologically advances in different cultures and historical periods. It is offered thus to participant the opportunity to create a personal gallery where each piece has a contextual relationship with the characteristics of each theme.
The theory is worked on with the playful activities, in this way while the subject is explained to the students, they will be making a piece created with their hands, added to this the theme will be reinforced with environmental music chord, multimedia tools are also used to show documentaries or video clips.
The interest of this program is to provide the participants with an overview of what has happened through the time with our civilizations, provide information to their cultural baggage, amplify their knowledge as soon as to its identity and that can be recognized in the great path that the human has made from the caves to the modern buildings in which we now develop, make it aware that despite our differences, we have a common origin and we are the consequence of all the past history.

Practical workshop for the construction of masks with reusable materials, characterized in stages of perception based on three questions:
Who do they say I am?
Who do I say I am?
Who am I?
The function is double:
On the one hand give the participant knowledge about techniques such as cardboard to assess the possibilities of materials considered "waste" due to the fact that in our environment they are limited to mere "packaging" and "disposable" functions.
The theme is the second key point of the activities. Being a "face" that is intended to build, the individual, from the issues raised, creates a link to the object in process and brings it closer to self-observation.
The program raises the need to take into account basic questions that collaborate to the integral growth of the individuals for a communal property, combining it with creative work.
Three open questions about the "I" are formulated, seeking with this to involve the participant with his sensitivity and mentality.
Reflection of the different perspectives on the resulting objects.
CONTEXT APPRECIATION EXPRESSION SESSIONS
Who do they say I am? Write ideas about the
vision that is created or expected from each one. Stereotypes and taboos. Match these ideas with graphic, chromatic, decorative elements, etc.

A walk that you can not miss, in the Heart of Playa del Carmen.
In the middle of the bustle of the 5th. Avenue , its modernity and cosmopolitan air, discover secrets of nature, which remains expectant: The Living Museum of Native Trees, “Native Root”.
Grandfather trees that tell us their history, their link with the Mayan worldview, their biology and environmental importance, and allow us to understand how they have survived the maelstrom of urban life and the modernity of the city.
But above all, it is a call to look at urban trees like those old neighbors who give us quality of life.
Either for its environmental services, for the benefits that its fruits or its elements give us, for the natural value of its species and, above all, for the symbolic representation that adds to the cultural identity of the area.
Enter the magical world of native trees within the city.
The sacred jungle is the sacred home of the sacred elements. The Aluxe is the guardian of Pachamama and he is the Ambassador of the Ancestral Acuifer Alliance as one heart tribe!

We are supporting a family project to build a children's school to teach them their language and traditions.
Join us to make the dream into something beautiful at their community.
Its scientific name is Aegla concepcionensis and it belongs to a family that subsists in fresh water. It is a decapod crustacean that measures between 2 and 3 centimeters. It was believed extinct until 2004, when UdeC researchers found specimens in the Cárcamo estuary, Costa Rica.
We are willing to support the preservation projects by creating our own cosmovision of how the tiger crab could also manifest sensibility to the mangrove swamp and the rest of the ecosystem from the rivers to the sea wildlife.
Please contact us to support the environment!
Technical data taken from the Cientific park PACYT:
Our goal is to preserve wildlife taking as iconic and emblematic animal, The Jaguar, nevertheless to be able to preserve their natural environment and food resources we most focus in other species such as Deer and Tapir. Why?
If peaceful animals, unable to defend them self from humans, are preserved and protected therefore the magnificent Jaguar will be able to eat and walk freely into the wilderness of Mother Nature.
Icons like the beautiful Tapir, also give us the opportunity to touch the children's heart because they look cute and their similarities to elephant trunk. That creates an immediater reaction to the children, the wonder of who they are and why they look that way.
Preservation programs most begin with Love and we most Love what we are willing to honor and protect !
If you are already working on the preservation of the Tapir, please do not hesitate to contact us and talk about possible ways to extend the preserved land all over Latin America as one unique natural reserve that could go beyond borders and Nations.
Costa Rica is moving forward with amazing response from community and Government, what else could be done to recover the natural paths of wildlife from North, Central and South Americas?
Project: Cultural, Civil & Environmental Association
Commercial Name: NACAOME A.C.
Pillars: Re Collect // Re Use // Re Cycle // Re Generate
Slogan: "We trust & support enviromental identity"
Objective: Generate social awareness on the importance of collecting household and industrial waste for its reuse or recycling; implementing community initiatives in favor of a more friendly environment to the ecosystem of today and future generations.
History: In January 2003, the first group of specialists was formed with a projection to environmental issues with visions in areas such as architecture, agriculture, engineering, sociology and education among other branches of great importance that are the main gears for analyzing and structuring proposals for action immediate with self-sustainability in the long term.
This group brought together people from Latin America, Asia and Europe working pro actively through networks of work on the Internet, carrying out "in situ" scalable ecological prototypes to alternative eco-friendly solutions in society.
Having an arduous participation in the formation of tripartite bodies (Government / Companies / Associations), such as the COEPA (State Council for the Protection of the Environment) created in 2003 in the State of Veracruz, Mexico, having work tables with society and these three sectors to put to the surface real problems and plan joint solutions with respect to environmental issues.
At the same time as a group we also supported national campaigns (2003/2004 Mexico) of social conscience for the correct separation of organic and inorganic waste, working on the whole campaign concept and social connection strategy to be able to implement these actions.
Conforming this way a global campaign via Internet within social networks (Mexico, Russia, Singapore, Macao, Hong Kong, Argentina, Canada, USA) of conscience by means of three logos representative of the "RE" and that today make up the official Environmental icons of "FUSION RESPONSABLE", with the slogan "We trust & support enviromental identity".
Initiative: Since 2005, an experimental artistic production workshop has been set up in the Mexican Caribbean of the Riviera Maya, well known as Cueva Jaguar, the house of PermArquitectura prototypes. One of its main objectives is the production of object art and the production of furniture designed and built with industrial waste under a very specific theme.
Strong of REuse and REgeneration of materials.
Currently FUSION RESPONSABLE, It expands its borders in Asia and Latin America, constantly collaborating with governments, entrepreneurs and associations to create a conscious level of awareness in today's society.
Also supporting from 2016 to 2018 the Consejo Sostenible de la Riviera Maya as Active Members. (The Riviera Maya Sustainable Council).
Due to this, the initiative arises to form a base in Costa Rica in the city of Santa Elena, PZ. in the second quarter of 2020, in a first stage of collection of industrial waste, specifically reusable. Through a very well structured campaign with the support of schools and printing centers in the area.
Supporting the educational centers with containers for the capture of the matter under formal long-term agreements that allow to collect the waste periodically within their facilities and to be able to subsequently climb to the aluminum, PET, glass, etc.
Companies that consume considerable margins of paper and discard it daily will also be an important part of the organized collection; thus encouraging employees to be more aware of the management of resources in the office.
At the same time agreements will be generated to give courses / workshops to young people and adults on various topics related to education and ecological awareness at a practical and simple level to make learning enjoyable collectively within the facilities of educational centers.
The Nacaome Group, reiterates the importance of joining forces and working constantly in the struggle to recover and preserve the heritage of all humanity and the beings that cohabit it.
We invite you to search for documentaries and movies related to Pachamama, Mother Nature, Gaia, Ayahuasca, DMT, Consciousness and mainly Animes that will bring back your innerchild to play!
Your support and your contributions will allow us to reach our goals and improve the conditions. Your generous donation will finance our mission.
