They want to build solidarity ties through work, education and the construction of the community. They want La Juanita to be a social place where people can build and create together.
Being there and seeing how people who can be considered extremely poor started their own businesses from scratch with the help of La Juanita was very inspiring to see.
One of the ways they got people to contribute was to give "free" education to their children. What I mean by "free" is that they did not set a monetary price, but instead they have to give their time and value to La Juanita once a week. It was mostly(only) mothers who worked there so that their children could get education. These mothers got education as well, and some of them did not even know how to read when joining. The things they learn and how their values change give them incredible experience to create and learn even more.
