Working Method

The Building Adventure since its creation developed its methodology based on 7 pillars:

1- Starting from reality – understanding the reality of the entrepreneur and context is the starting point for identifying needs and responses nder more appropriately.

2- Generate protagonism believing in the centrality of the person – the human factor is the engine of development. For change to be achieved and to be sustainable, it is essential that people become aware of their own needs, wealth and what they need, as they become protagonists of their development.

3- Accompany the beneficiary – ADC carries out its work by individually accompanying its beneficiaries, believing in their freedom, helping to see the solution of problems and guiding in decision making. This process is a differential in relation to other institutions that offer services similar to microentrepreneurs.

4- Betting on integral human training – as they are people with weaknesses, the ADC understands that it needs to strengthen the subject. Therefore, it goes beyond technical training, proposing cultural, technological and scientific content in its training. This makes it possible to broaden horizons in the beneficiaries’ lives.

5- Acting with a G-local vision – the transformation of society is part of the positive change of the person, what we call “G-local”, since once positively impacted, it can become a multiplier and generator of changes in its surroundings , expanding the scope of transformation.

6- Act in a network and create bridges – in a subsidiary view, we develop partnerships with companies, NGOs and volunteers, who help us in all spheres of work to have tools that respond to the identified objectives.

7- Ensuring transparency and ethics – we disclose data guaranteeing access to information and transmitting credibility to different stakeholders.
