We believe in Real Field Work
Natik’s year-round commitment to education and economic impact in the areas where we work makes us an exceptional ally for institutions outside of Mexico and Guatemala. We believe that significant contribution to the north-south dialog is based on genuine information exchanges between people who would normally not have the opportunity to be in direct contact with one another.
All aspects of our immersions are carefully planned in collaboration with our partner organizations. We create spaces for sharing of personal and professional experience related to issues that are important to all of us, such as the regional causes of poverty, environmental degradation, and migration.
It is only when we truly understand that we are more alike than we are different that we can attempt to understand the global and regional causes of educational, economic, environmental, social, and political imbalances that create the divisive illusion of “us and them”.
Our goal is that each immersion is a fair and balanced exchange between the academic and service expectations of the immersion participants, the areas of expertise visitors can contribute, and needs of the people, organizations, and communities that we partner with in México and Guatemala.
For groups interested in Natik Immersions, we've developed a form that gives us enough details to get a conversation started. We look forward to hearing from you!
