The 7th Educateurs sans Frontières Assembly was held from 21 July - 3 August 2019 in Tepoztlán, Mexico, in collaboration with AMI Affiliate Montessori Mexico. This Assembly, themed The Mind and Hand Together - Community in Action, brought together 65  participants from every continent, with a large representation from Latin America.  The first week focused on the connection between the Mind and Hand, with topics ranging from brain development and creativity, Montessori for ageing and Montessori in indigenous communities. The theme for the second week was Community in Action, with presentations from adolescents from Mexico, UNICEF Mexico, the story of building Montessori community in Argentina and Arts and Creativity as social interventions. Three different groups came together to collectively work on the following topics as a foundation for EsF work: involving adolescents, measuring impact and human rights. 

The participants were involved in a variety of community activities: learning about the local culture through traditional candle making and painting, working with bamboo and papier maché. They also actively engaged with the local community at the Tashirat Orphanage in Tepoztlán, preparing the greenhouses and creating a vegetable garden, painting furniture and making classified cards for the children, while other participants gardened in the hotel grounds and initiated a recycling programme in collaboration with the hotel staff.
