2018 is proving to be an exciting year in our pursuit of creating lasting communities of change in Mexico.

Since our last report,

  • Women partners confirm again that our bottom-up oriented, rights-based work is right and good. 
  • We launch multiple new initiatives, including our action-learning "Seed Fund" through which women's NGOs produce their inaugural projects by years end.
  • PSYDEH impacts and is impacted by global partners Dentsu Aegis Network, Bank of America, GlobalGiving and their Social Impact Academy and American art student Olivia Taylor.


Remigia Rivera, pictured above and the 32-year-old Otomí president of our partner NGO "Women With a Future", is one of 20 indigenous women leaders of a network of NGOs we incubate in 2018 with your crowdfunding investment. In recent workshops, Remigia and her peers, invited to share with folks like you around the world, offer comments like "I think we must invite all of our region's communities to our work. I enjoy what we learn with PSYDEH, especially recent workshops on how we can combat violence and pursue gender equality."


Our free development work centers on strengthening women partners with knowledge on things like rights awareness and organizing training and support. In the summer/fall of 2018, this is translated into PSYDEH producing our (1) inaugural action-learning "Seed Fund" initiative, (2) innovative storytelling training, (3) embroidery investment project, and (4) conducting with women leaders a SWOT analysis of their NGOs while demonstrating the importance of organizational transparency. These actions double the return on your investment. One, you fund these actions. Two, these actions help to build the foundation from which women will launch their own actions in 2019. Two good impacts with one investment! 


"We are stronger together" in pursuit of our good work. This mantra resonates with women partners confronting abandonment and isolation and it resonates with us, a small NGO working for paradigm changes in Mexico. Recent evidence of this truth includes how our:

  • business support initiative with Bank of America results in smarter integration of online assets,

With this win-win quarterly bulletin, we write less to share more. 

PSYDEH is thrilled to announce the publication of our 2017 Annual Report in two forms:

This document marks a complete redesign of how we think about reporting to donor-investors thanks to our ongoing collaboration with the global digital media and digital communications Dentsu Aegis Network. And it speaks to a seminal year for PSYDEH in 2017, which we now build into bigger and better impact in 2018.

Second, with a picture worth a thousand words, and video better than a photo, we invite you into "our living room" with these three short videos from our feminine voices series:

Our harvest is bigger and better than ever, and we invite you to share in celebrating our progress.

Happy summer from PSYDEH!
