“I love Ixtepec’s peacefulness, security, traditions, culture, and the warmth of the people. But in Ixtepec we lack health service centers. The existing services are inefficient and not all people have access to quality healthcare. We also need support in the agricultural sector with seeds and equipment. And we lack recreational spaces to practice sports or for activities.
I imagine an Ixtepec in which all people have the same rights for economic development but without loosing our traditions and customs, such as the language and natural beauty. Most of all, I envision a city where the people of Ixtepec have the training and skills that will allow them to compete in the marketplace.
