Give a $10 gift of education so marginalized indigenous women gain tools to create micro-projects that combat community poverty.

With $25, you can support indigenous Mexican women so they are empowered to lead solutions to rise above the inequality they face.

A donation of $100 teaches mexican indigenous women how to seek ongoing funds to sustain and grow their needed community projects.

Help us support rural people, and their communities, who have been strongly affected by the economic and health downfall of COVID-19.

Help us print our new narrative e-book that features the stories and challenges of indigenous women confronting communal inequality.

Join us for a win-win partnership. Support women in Mexico, while we help you build your brand and transition into a socially responsible corporation.

PSYDEH A.C. is an award-winning Mexican grassroots non-profit organization with national and international reach.

Our needed work links adult leader training and citizen education with human rights-based community organizing and local-led, high impact project production. Our goal? Empower Mexican citizens and their communities to lead the bottom-up, sustainable development of their own marginalized areas.

We currently work together with indigenous women to solve their own local problems in the four indigenous municipalities of the Otomí-Tepehua region of Hidalgo, central Mexico.

Inspiring stories from women change-makers supported by PSYDEH in Mexico.

Soy como la tierra
Que siempre está activa
Se sobrecalienta al trabajar tanto
Sin embargo, contaba con un poco de hielo
Para tranquilizarse.

Como la naturaleza viva
Soy trabajadora con fuerza, justicia y voluntad
Para lograr lo que quiero para mí y los demás
Tanto como las plantas, la tierra y las personas
Para poder salir adelante con grandes logros.

Soy una mujer alegre, me gusta compartir y servir a las personas de mi comunidad, vivo en la región del Valle, mi comunidad se llama San José del Valle del municipio de Tenango de Doria, en donde se siembra café, aguacate, naranja, plátanos y limón.

COVID-19 in Rural & Marginalized Areas, Episode Three

On April 21, Mexico entered Phase III of its contingency plan to fight COVID-19. Many parts of the Republic have already been under full-or partial quarantine for a month. Pessimism about the future and depression increase, and focus on human rights, social solidarity, and human dignity is spotty. In areas where information is accessible, people […]
