Semillas

The mission of Semillas, which means "seed"; in Spanish, is to empower women. Women in Mexico are empowered when we know and can defend our human rights. As Mexico's only women's foundation, Semillas makes grants to women's organizations to protect reproductive rights and health, win freedom from violence, gain labor rights, and achieve economic autonomy through income generating activities.
