8080 worked alongside the United Nations Development
Programme to help over 200 Mexican families who lost
their businesses after the September 2017 earthquakes that
devastated many communities in central Mexico.
We developed their business identity
and provided them with tools so they can maintain and re-create their
own applications using the artisanal resources
available to them.
We want them to rebuild their businesses through selfreliance,
with us only assisting them in the process
through a series of workshops that will allow them to tap
into their creativity and continue this effort on their own
and with their community’s support, without having to
wait for outside institutions to provide them with the help
they need. We believe that our main objective should be to
empower them in the midst of chaos and destruction, and
to provide them with new opportunities for their families,
their businesses, and their community as a whole.
