With your support you can help girls and young women from the indigenous communities of the Mixteca Alta in Oaxaca, Mexico a region with high migration rates. We want to increase their empowerment skills so they can know their rights in order to prevent situations of gender violence, trafficking and sexual exploitation since childhood.
Extreme violence against girls and women in Oaxaca is alarming and femicides have been increasing, in the last three years 275 femicides have been registered. A spite of it, public policies that address this problem have not been implemented. In Mixtec communities there are high rates of migration in girls between 12 to 17 years. This, place them in situations of risk, vulnerability and violence since they do not have socio-emotional tools for their self-care and setting limits, they do not kno
With this project, 30 indigenous girls from Oaxaca, Mexico will be part of a feminist camp for girls with the objective of strengthening their socio-emotional skills that contribute to preventing gender violence and other problems such as trafficking or sexual exploitation in contexts with high migration rates.
Girls and young women participating in the Feminist Camp will have socio-emotional tools, empowerment and knowledge in human rights. This will allow them to replicate the information with other girls and women in their communities who, for economic and labor reasons, could migrate in the future.
