In 2011, FMCN partnered with The Canadian Fund and U'yo'olche A.C. to expand the first phase of the Sustainable Rural Life project in 3 Mayan communities in the state of Quintana Roo and install Hot Pots for 100 families.
In 2012, FMCN has worked directly with Environment Canada to launch projects with the following NGOs: NiparajÃ¡ in Baja California, Profauna in Coahuila, U'yoo'olche in Quintana Roo, and the cooperative of Mujeres de la Frontera Sur in Tabasco. FMCN received approximately 1.6 million pesos in funding from this project.
In seeking to enlist corporate partnerships, FMCN is collaborating with Continental Messaging Services (SCM) to develop their corporate responsibility efforts from a donation-based approach to a holistic plan to distribute and train employees in the usage of eco-technologies. So far, employees have benefitted from the various eco-technologies offered; technologies like Hot Pots, clean cookstoves and solar water heaters among others. In 2012, SCM has furthered its dedication to this project by committing approximately 1.2 million pesos to the development of Sustainable Rural Life
