Gonogochi, a raramuri indigenous community in the state of Chihuahua in Mexico, is marked by extreme poverty, high illiteracy and dropout rates (especially among girls); rising levels of violence and drug use; and an increasing loss of indigenous identity. For this reason, this project aims to offer an innovative educational model with indigenous elements that includes themes such as gender equity and addiction prevention in order to promote school attendance and education of indigenous girls.


Through workshops and meetings, teachers and parents will be trained in different topics and will develop a model and educative materials for children. They will include contents from the official government curriculum as well as raramuri elements.

Long-Term Impact

The project will promote the education of indigenous girls with a gender perspective, involving parents and teachers in the process. More than 200 girls and women will have better opportunities and a strengthened indigenous identity.

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Excel file (projdoc.xls).
