Women Improving Life for Themselves, their Families and Communities!

Thanks to your continued support Ñepi Behña is promoting women’s development through community projects that are sustainable and that address the issue of gender in indigenous communities. They are offering capacity-building tools and seeking economic development alternatives in order to empower indigenous rural women and their families. 

Ñephi Behña is able to provide more workshops and trainings to promote leadership development and autonomy in communities of Hidalgo, Mexico. 

Women have been able to organize themselves as promoters and leaders, where now the communities of Hidalgo are starting to recognize their important role as women and their contributions to society.

Ñepi Behña has enjoyed great accomplishments this year, such as diversifying their production made with natural resources that is helping to create new products to be sold in the local markets.  Additionally, eco-technologies were implemented through the construction of integrated backyard gardens using agroecological practices and chicken-raising skills.  Because of this, women have built awareness and analytical skills to address the food crisis. 

By lending your support, you are not only changing the life of one woman, but you are a direct part of the change in her community and her world!
