Almost a year after the Government of Tlajomulco launched the program “Chamba for Everyone” as part of the economic reactivation of the municipality in the face of the crisis derived from the COVID-19 pandemic, in total they have benefited 6,208 people, 157 businesses and 198 public spaces were rehabilitated.
The investment of the program is 3.1 million pesos during the year 2021, it consists of people affected by the economic crisis working as a brigade member in the rehabilitation of public spaces, and as compensation the municipality grants them a coin as Tlajovale with a value of 100 pesos, which they can exchange for essential products in local businesses that receive support of up to 20 thousand pesos from the municipality.
“Thank you for agreeing to participate in this program that we just started last year, and that was very successful., because a year ago what we did was promote a program that aimed to reactivate the economy after the strike that unfortunately occurred due to the pandemic”, commented the municipal president, Salvador Zamora.
“It was so successful that we tripled the budget that we put into it last year for this year, so that it became a social policy of the municipality, that is why I am very pleased that they participate because not only reactivates the local economy, it also helps us to recover public spaces”, highlighted the mayor.
Zamora Zamora delivered this week Tlajovales to 40 brigade members of the program who worked on the rehabilitation of public spaces in Cluster 4, in Santa Fe.
Likewise, he participated in a clean-up day in Santa Cruz de Las Flores, where he was sweeping and collecting garbage in the main square.
“I am very happy to make this delivery of these Tlajovales so that we can, in recognition of our work, have this consideration that I am sure will be useful to all their families, so congratulations and thank you very much, we must continue participating. All the social programs that Tlajomulco has have the vocation of social co-responsibility, that is, our responsibility is shared with the citizens, we as a government to attend to them, but you help us to conserve these spaces”, said the first mayor.
The program achieved greater coverage in the Valle de Tlajomulco area, where more social vulnerability is concentrated, since up to 35 percent of the brigade members and beneficiary businesses are residents of that part of the municipality.
