The Story of PSYDEH
Based in the eastern mountains of Hidalgo, Mexico, PSYDEH has fortified strong relationships with local women and a diverse range of global allies through consistent, collaborative, grassroots programming since 2007.
Engaging women as partners instead of beneficiaries, PSYDEH ensures local needs and demands always guide our work.
In 2022-2024, PSYDEH’s community-led development model fosters personal and professional skill building, sustainable community impact, and women’s social and economic empowerment.
