Discover how Angelica Flores of Planetario ALFA made others see with her eyes and social entrepreneurship

If you’ve visited Planetario ALFA lately to hang out with the dinasours or discover the magic of the universe, you surely saw a tile mural in the parking lot area. It’s hard to ignore, not only because of it’s nearly 15-meter width, but because of the small, realistic, and abstract eyes that are painted on it.

Each one of them represents the success of “With Your Eyes I’ll See”, Planetario ALFA’s social entrepreneurship project in the interest of Destellos de Luz ABP.

“With Your Eyes I’ll See” consisted in inviting Planetario ALFA’s visitors to buy a tile and creatively paint eyes on it. With the collected sum, three operations took place and Ma. Simitria, Rosaura, and Brayan recovered their sight.

Angélica Flores, collaborator for 18 years at Planetario ALFA, and her team, are responsible of this and every social entrepreneurship project developed by Planetario. Their mission is to create projects that give back to the community and benefit a specific association.

“Union for a common objective is what achieves change”.

She recognizes that social entrepreneurship is different because not only does it manage an economic benefit, but you create a bond with and teach something to the community. The opportunity to light up that restlessness in people to participate and help is where social entrepreneurship excels.

Angélica and her team came face to face with obstacles on the way to success. From making the paint stay on the tile and figuring out how it would react to the sun, to selling enough tiles to make the project successful.
