Germina is a long term initiative to amplify projects that seek to generate more community participation in the state of Jalisco.
"People in Jalisco are active and feel like doing more. We want all those wills and ideas that will make all the difference, germinate. Sometimes, it only takes a boost. That's why we created Germina, a long-term initiative to promote projects that seek to generate a participatory community in the state of Jalisco.
Germina was born following the resignation of independent congressman Pedro Kumamoto at 70% of his salary, as part of an effort to build an austere, honest and congruent policy. This money is destined fortnight after fortnight to a seed fund, open and transparent, managed through Corporate of Foundations. Periodically, announcements will be generated, activities and workshops that will consolidate the Germina community.
Let our ideas be the main reason for meeting and change. Let's demonstrate all that is possible when we build in collective."
