Querido amigo de Mano Vuelta,


Gracias por sembrar esperanza y contribuir al fortalecimiento de los derechos de las niñas indígenas en Oaxaca. ¡Gracias!

Queremos agradecerles la confianza para apoyar nuestras iniciativas, entre tantas opciones que buscamos promover mejores condiciones para los niños en nuestras comunidades nativas.

Compartimos algo de lo que hemos logrado gracias a su amabilidad, incluso con los desafíos de la pandemia Covid-19.

1. Talleres artísticos gratuitos para niñas de comunidades nativas o indígenas de barrios de la periferia de la ciudad de Oaxaca.

Durante estos encuentros, las niñas y jóvenes pudieron reconocer la importancia de las habilidades socioemocionales para prevenir la violencia sexual o la trata, también aumentaron sus conocimientos sobre sus derechos humanos, principalmente a la participación, a una vida libre de violencia y sobre el derechos sexuales y reproductivos. Un tema fundamental fue el reconocimiento de los tipos de violencia principalmente en las relaciones afectivas y herramientas para el autocuidado y la seguridad digital.
2. Taller gratuito sobre diversidad sexual en el aula para docentes.

This workshop was held virtually with teachers from various regions of the state of Oaxaca since due to the wide socio-demographic dispersion of the state it is difficult to carry out these workshops in person with such diversity.This workshop was a great achievement because it allowed the awareness of more teachers to promote rights from an early age, diversity and respect for otherness.


3. We are lovingly preparing the follow-up to the 3rd. artistic and feminist camp for the rights of Mixtec girls where we will gather the group of participants that we had with us in 2020 to continue reflecting, learning and having fun together. That this space we will talk about the prevention of trafficking and early or forced unions, the prevention of unwanted pregnancies, attention to sexual violence, health and sexual and reproductive rights and digital security. These spaces allow us to continue building bridges, alliances and support networks and to have stronger girls, recognizing their rights and free to choose a life plan. We are excited to continue talking about our identity and indigenous women that inspires us to continue for our goals.
4. Próximamente buscaremos expandir estas reflexiones a otras regiones geográficas del estado de Oaxaca, ya que está dividido en 8 regiones y 570 municipios y queremos que más niñas tengan la oportunidad de vivir esta experiencia y fortalecer sus derechos.


¡Gracias por ser parte de este gran proyecto!
Los invitamos a seguir sumando para que estas acciones se puedan replicar en diferentes áreas del territorio de Oaxaca, para que cada vez más niñas y adolescentes indígenas puedan tener un enfoque ético, respetuoso y amoroso de sus derechos. Necesitamos que sigas apoyando y creando propuestas similares. Muchas gracias por tu apoyo.

Con agradecimiento les enviamos un fuerte y esperanzado abrazo del equipo de Oaxaca.

Appreciable friend of Mano Vuelta,

We want to thank you for the trust to support our initiatives, among so many options you have chosen to contribute to the strengthening of the rights of indigenous girls in Oaxaca. Thank you!

We share some of what we have accomplished because of your kindness, even with the challenges of the pandemic.

  1.  Artistic and Feminist Camp for the Rights of Mixtec Girls was held on December 3, 4, 5 and 6, 2020, in the Heroic City of Tlaxiaco, belonging to the Mixtec region of the state of Oaxaca, Mexico. In which 30 girls and adolescents between 6 and 13 years of age participated, with the aim of strengthening their rights and the development of socio-emotional and self-care skills with an affective-sexual gender and humanist approach to the prevention of violence, child sexual abuse, sexual harassment and trafficking, cultural self-defense and digital safety in Mixtec girls and adolescents. Participants received for free a series of artistic workshops, made with a participatory, artistic and thoughtful methodology; under disciplines such as feminist photography, participatory theatre, feminist rap, graphic, feminist poetry, narrative and short story writing, binding, cartoning and masking. Thanks to your donation we were able to pay for transfers, food, materials and solidarity fees for teachers and participants.
  2. Participants in the feminist camp for girls increased their knowledge by learning about the Gender Violence Care directory, established together with a network of indigenous and local allied women's organizations for the care of girls, adolescents and Mixtec women.
  3. We conducted together with 32 indigenous girls and adolescents the workshop "Mapping of Early or Forced Marriages and Unions Through a mapping methodology, the knowledge, hard data, feelings and thoughts of participants related to child marriages and early unions in the Mixteca region, corresponding to the axis: self-defense were addressed; which allowed participants to reflect on informal unions in which girls and adolescents are immersed close to their context, crossed by inequalities, gender-based violence, traditions among other factors, which gave way to the socialization of factors and tools of protection in their daily spaces.
  4. We held a virtual forum with 57 girls from different territories on International Women's and Girls' Day in Science, called: forum "We inhabit all territories, Oaxacan women in science", to continue to demand accessibility and full participation of women and girls in scientific spaces, emphasizing the historical demand for the voices of indigenous girls and women; as well as with the aim of collectively disseminating and strengthening women close to our realities and contexts, it was held where 3 women scientists with backgrounds in the local, national and international territory were special guests, it was an inspiring space for the 57 participating girls and adolescents. Her questions and comments were related to what is the experience of living in other territories, to what were the means to have reached those spaces, also to the challenges and stereotypes that they have faced as women in the world of science and the spaces in which they have trained professionally.
  5. On 08 March International Women's Day, "Between the Clouds or How to Get Out of Them" was launched, to which an informative talk on how to prevent digital violence and sexual trafficking was added. About 40 people attended this space, scattered in 3 different roles, mostly girls, adolescents and a caregiver. The dialogue led to reflection related to the most popular social networks used for the recruitment of women and girls, as well as the fears, fears and needs that the people in charge of a girl or adolescent feel.

We invite you to continue to add so that these actions can be replicated in different areas of the territory of Oaxaca, so that more and more indigenous girls and adolescents can have an approach to their rights in an ethical, respectful and loving way. We need you to continue to support and create similar proposals. Thank you very much for your support.

With gratitude we send you a strong and hopeful embrace of Team Oaxaca

El contexto y panorama que se vive en Oaxaca a raíz de la crisis de salud provocada por el Covid-19 es muy complejo y poco alentador para las niñas y mujeres indígenas en cuanto a garantías de derechos.

En el contexto de encierro por COVID-19, se han registrado incrementos significativos en los casos de abuso, violación y embarazos no deseados, ya que las niñas y adolescentes pasan más tiempo en casa o cerca de los agresores y la evidencia indica que más del 70% de los abusadores son parientes o personas cercanas a la familia.

En lo que va de 2020, 79 mujeres han sido asesinadas en Oaxaca durante la actual administración del gobierno y el mayor número de delitos sexuales contra niñas y mujeres entre los 10 y 19 años se ha registrado en las regiones del Valle Central, Istmo y Mixteca. antiguo

Durante estos meses hemos impulsado una red de psicoterapeutas feministas que pueden atender a niñas y mujeres indígenas sobrevivientes de violencia, específicamente en casos de violencia sexual, y se ha gestionado el apoyo legal para su atención oportuna.

Por otro lado, desde Mano Vuelta AC, se promovieron espacios de participación para niñas y adolescentes indígenas en el llamado “Foro Niñas y Mujeres que inspiran”, que son diálogos intergeneracionales donde buscamos referencias de otras niñas y mujeres indígenas para Fortalecen nuestra identidad, estos espacios se realizan habitualmente de forma presencial y se hace realidad gracias al apoyo que recibimos de personas que creen en estas propuestas y a través de plataformas como GlobalGiving. Como resultado del contexto actual, hemos adaptado estas actividades de forma virtual.

Seguimos impulsando campañas de difusión de los Derechos Sexuales y Reproductivos a través de las redes sociales dirigidas a niñas y adolescentes principalmente, el autocuidado, las alternativas menstruales así como espacios de expresión para las niñas y que nos cuenten cómo están viviendo y manejando sus emociones en tiempos de Covid a través de la campaña “video de emoción” donde niñas de diversos contextos y territorios han puesto su palabra.

Gracias por apoyar nuestras iniciativas y nos estamos preparando para que tan pronto como sea posible llegar a otras comunidades y poblaciones indígenas del estado de Oaxaca en persona, sigamos gestionando nuestro encuentro presencial en la región mixteca de Oaxaca. y espero que haya mejores condiciones para ello.

Finalmente, su apoyo ha ayudado a apoyar los gastos operativos de la organización en tiempos de dificultad y a continuar con nuestras actividades y sueños de un mundo más justo y equitativo para las niñas y mujeres.

Con agradecimiento
Mano Team Vuelta AC

Dear friend

From the team in which we are part, the indigenous and Afro-Mexican women of Oaxaca want to thank them for their kindness and for believing that projects such as can make a difference. You're part of this change.

During this period, we have worked to contact the friends and allies who are part of the feminist camp for girls who volunteer workshops, making self-management of the heart of this space continue to fall. We have designed and worked on our accompanying methodologies with indigenous girls, as well as in strengthening partnerships with women of Tlaxiaco Oaxaca in the Mixtec region of Oaxaca, where this meeting will take place for the third time.

We know that this year we will have free workshops for indigenous girls on digital security, self-care, feminist self-defense, feminist photography, sexual and reproductive rights, prevention of sexual abuse, among others, to support the prevention of violence from childhood. In a country called Mexico, where 10 women are killed a day.

So, thanks to people like you and many more who trust our work, we have quickly responded to COVID-19 by taking out basic food for indigenous girls and women who have accelerated without work or income, as it depends on informal activities such as selling handicrafts, sweets or working in small restaurants or serving as domestic workers. We also help teenagers in juvenile detention centers in Oaxaca. Thanks to generous people like you, we were able to benefit more than 30 families with pantries and maintain our physical office space where we work.

We hope that at the end of the year we will be able to find the conditions to carry out our project, since now the COVID-19 health crisis is at its highest point of contact in Oaxaca. We'll be giving news about our project, but we're sure that once we can get back on the street, we can hug again and smile.

Thank you for your generosity.
With gratitude our love.

During this time we have known stories of incredible girls and women.

 

Thanks to the feminist school for Girls we can find tools that allow them to know their rights as well as identify support networks in cases of violence.

 

In the coming month of July we will have our third Feminist Camp for Girls, we are excited because we already have headquarters, which will be in Tlaxiaco. This community is located in the Mixteca region of Oaxaca and this area has high migration indicators. They will assist indigenous girls from different communities who are around Tlaxiaco and that excites us and it is a challenge to reach all of them, but we believe to achieve it with your support.

 

We seek to make girls aware of their rights to prevent situations of violence, human trafficking and sexual exploitation.

 

We will be bringing you news and images of this meeting once it is held, especially of the workshops they will receive on prevention of child sexual abuse, human rights, feminist photography among others.

 

Thanks to the name of those of us who are part of the Mano Vuelta AC team

 

 

 

Durante este tiempo hemos conocido historias de niñas y mujeres increibles.

Gracias a la escuela feminista para Niñas podemos encontrar herramientas que les permitan conocer sus derechos así como identificar redes de apoyo en casos de violencia.

En el próximo mes de julio tendremos nuestro tercer Campamento Feminista para Niñas, estamos emocionados porque ya tenemos sede, la cual será en Tlaxiaco. Esta comunidad está ubicada en la región Mixteca de Oaxaca y está zona tiene altos indicadores de migración. Asistirán a las niñas indígenas de diferentes comunidades que se ubican al rededor de Tlaxiaco y eso nos emociona y supone un reto para poder llegar a todas ellas, pero creemos lograrlo con tu apoyo.

Busacamos que las niñas conozcas sus derechos para prevenir situaciones de violencia, trata de personas y explotación sexual.

Estaremos haciéndoles llegar novedades e imágenes de este encuentro una vez que se realice, sobre todo de los talleres que recibirán sobre prevención de abuso sexual infantil, derechos humanos, fotografía feminista entre otros.

Gracias a nombre de quienes integramos el equipo Mano Vuelta AC

¡Tu apoyo hace la diferencia!
