SOCIAL IMPACT PROJECTS

The micro-finance component is the most daring part of this project. From the geico we are giving communities absolute decision power to vote for and implement their very own social impact project as a product of months of mapping and defining their own needs for a just recovery.

WHAT IS IMAGINACIÓN POST-MARÍA?

PROBLEM

The widespread devastation caused by Hurricane María has shed light to the deeply-rooted flaws of Puerto Rico’s hierarchical and non-participatory government system. The centralization of power and lack of accessibility to funds has not only trumped the arrival of much needed services across the island, but has also denied citizens the opportunity to actively participate in the processes of recuperating their own communities.

OBJECTIVE

We envision a Puerto Rico where every community has the opportunity to take charge of their own future. We hope to decentralize the management of resources  by developing new participatory governance models that give citizens direct power to imagine, plan and build the changes they desire for their communities.

STRATEGY

Combining community planning with the power of microfinance and capacity-building, we propose a community resiliency approach that enables citizens to imagine the future they desire and collaboratively implement a project that reflects their needs and hopes.

Help us shape a democratic,
bottom-up recovery of our island.

We propose implementing our participatory community recovery model in 3 diverse and contrasting geographies within the island, specifically in urban, rural, and eastern landscapes. This diversity will allow us to constrast our findings and establish distinct case studies, so as to further develop, enhance and measure our model as a replicable solution for long-term crisis management.
