Summary

In rural Mexico, women are central to society but not supported. They are constrained by social and economic inequality, scant communication tools, human rights violations, and abandonment. Our work empowers indigenous women to lead change in their communities. This campaign funds micro-impact activities that are developed and led by our partners' groups. Our goal is that women be the leaders and business women they are, and are seen by peers as having an impactful voice in their communities.

Challenge

Hidalgo is the 6th most marginalized state in Mexico. In PSYDEH's target area, 60 percent of indigenous women haven't completed 4th grade, and some 95% face discrimination and violence in the home, at school, and in politics. Women participate only nominally in civic-and economic life. They live in rural, isolated areas and are not recognized as problem-solvers or income generators. Their supplying demand for high-quality crafts is often undercut by middlemen paying less than market value.

Solution

This project lessens women's inequality through three strategies. Education: workshops, mentoring, and networking build knowledge, skills, and support needed to develop projects. Empowerment: leadership training, project-management, and fair-trade practices. Rights: grassroots projects' success, selling goods for fair prices, and formalizing their organizations increases women's visibility; they are seen as communal impact-makers. Success is leveraged into more funding for future change actions.

Long-Term Impact

Women armed with decision-making clarity, new experiences, and economic resources, thanks to your donation, will combat root causes of violence and gender inequality through their micro-economic projects that solve daily problems. Their organizations will advocate for more community resources and they will meet global demand for artisan goods. Success will be celebrated with men and officials. Eventually, PSYDEH's model with women solving local problems is scaled across Mexico and the Americas.
