Slum Dwellers’ International “Radication” Campaign

In another campamento I work with, dirigentas were awarded with a grant by an international social movement for the urban poor, the Slum Dwellers’ International, based in South Africa. The funds allowed dirigentas to conduct participatory mapping sessions and a topographic study of their campamento. I was an integral part of this project, assisting with the mapping sessions, participating in community events related to the project, and assisting dirigentas in their negotiations with state officials.
