Challenge

The isolated mountain communities of rural Hidalgo, Mexico face high rates of social, economic, and gender inequality. Marginalization severely restricts women's capacity to address inequality and collaborate on community-driven development solutions.

Solution

Combatting social, economic, and gender inequality in rural Hidalgo, PSYDEH's Sierra Madre Network unites rural and Indigenous women in constructing a powerful cooperative network that drives community-driven sustainable development across ther region. Biweekly workshops support Indigenous women to expand their personal and professional development that empowers both individuals and communities.

Long-Term Impact

By centering our work on rural and Indigenous women leaders' needs and demands, the Sierra Madre Network uses a scalable impact-making program model to create long-term social and economic opportunities in a severely marginalized region. Joining PSYDEH's Sierra Madre Network you are a critical ally for rural and Indigenous women empowered as local leaders to advance social, economic, and gender equality in rural Mexico.
