Summary

Our ongoing general campaign funds work organizing Indigenous women to develop and lead their own network of collectives and local economic and social projects. 83% of women partners demand this kind of training on how to collaborate to make a direct impact and more access to information and communication technology. For democratic nations like Mexico, our unique model empowering citizens to solve their own problems is the way forward for sustainable local community development.

Challenge

In poor central Mexico, Indigenous women are central to families, communities, and cultural traditions, but they average a 3rd-grade education, and 95% report violence and discrimination in homes and schools. Wages are unlivable. Climate change and the pandemic wreak havoc on the environment and the economy. Public services are poor. Women do not unite nor make informed demands of non-transparent government. Too many men abandon their families in search of better in the USA.

Solution

It empowers women-led, sustainable, local community development. We use leader and rights education and solidarity network building to drive demand for basic services and homegrown solutions to problems. We train women to launch their own collectives and self-determined projects like growing organic gardens. We strengthen decision-making and management skills to sustain progress. Regular public forums empower women to promote their unprecedented development agenda to the government.

Long-Term Impact

Women drive sustained progress in communities when armed with decision-making clarity, authority and economic resources. For 100s of women, this project breaks the isolation in which they live by organizing around innate abilities and shared interests and power. Their network of collectives creates solutions to problems and supports female autonomy and regional alliances. With success, men become allies, poverty decreases and migration slows. We then scale our model across Mexico.
