I first study and learn with the communities to gain in-depth knowledge about their culture, which has permitted me to have an extensive range of communication strategies that are constantly transforming and evolving. With these strategies, we co create two-way translations to effectively address areas of need and promote capacity building, develop approaches, and tools, using familiar mediums of communication.
My central focus is on those remote and more marginalized communities, for whom access to information is limited and who have a high probability of being left out of the projects. These groups include women, youth, people with disabilities, indigenous communities, and recently forest-dependent communities.
I use design techniques to work with low-literacy communities that lack a written language, as well as with technologically advanced societies whose modes of communication are continuously evolving.
