Challenge

Chiapas has a large number of native groups, governed by a regulatory system of each community, which in many circumstances disadvantages women. There is an urgent need to generate harmonious and beneficial spaces for indigenous women in Chiapas, where they can know their rights. Xilotl seeks to benefit 200 women through training and support, to activate their economy, helping to alleviate poverty and independence of women.

Solution

Training to indigenous women who want to participate in the creation, management and administration of initiatives within their communities. Courses and workshops carried out by experts in different topics, focused on: textiles, crafts, food (bakery) and botanical garden (backyard gardens). Strengthening their abilities to direct, manage and solve in order to be able to take entrepreneurship or initiative in a personal and collective way, towards success. Accompaniment and frequent monitoring.

Long-Term Impact

Strengthening of social action and leadership of indigenous women inside and outside their communities will be worked on over 6 months, with strategies to influence community policies and decision-making; Work will be done transversally with food safety issues. They will indirectly benefit both their families and community members, having an indirect impact on more than 700 people, among other women, men, girls, boys and youth.
