After a year of dedicated training, PSYDEH's Sierra Madre Network of women-led cooperatives has produced their very first spring collection of traditional textiles and handmade products to present in Mexico City. This pop-up event is a 4+ hour trip from rural Hidalgo and requires major logistical costs. AND SO, we're inviting friends and family to join us in celebrating rural women entrepreneurs by chipping in to make this event a big success! This is what women's empowerment looks like.
Mexico City is a 4+ hour trip from the isolated, marginalized communities in Hidalgo where cooperative members live. This ambitious pop-up event - while a significant milestone for rural women entrepreneurs - requires some major logistical costs (basic transport, housing, and food costs) for a small nonprofit AND SO we've decided to call on friends and family near and far to join us in bringing these powerhouse women to represent themselves and their work for the very first time in Mexico City.
Together we can empower rural women entrepreneurs in Mexico and their shared ambitions to commercialize their products, expand their networks and market opportunities, provide for themselves and their families, ensure their cooperatives' long-term success, and celebrate their collective efforts thus far together in Mexico City. Small contributions add up! For example, $30 covers roundtrip transport for 1 woman; $20 covers meals for 2 days in CDMX; $15 covers housing in CDMX for 1 night.
PSYDEH's long-term goal is to foster the autonomy and growth of the Sierra Madre Network of women-led cooperatives so they can thrive with tools, resources, and opportunities for generations to come. Without experiences like this event, rural women entrepreneurs will not be able to connect or enter wider markets necessary to propel their cooperatives forward economically. If you can join us in CDMX please do, but if you can't, please consider chipping in to help make this event a big success!
