PSYDEH Program Inspires Local-Based Pilot Projects
In just two years time, PSYDEH’s program has already resulted in “the spontaneous” development of nine new pilot projects led by indigenous women!
Five women from the community of Los Reyes build a new project to raise sheep for meat, milk, fur and reproduction.
In the community of Santa Ana Tzacuala, two groups of women build different projects:

- Four women build a project to strengthen a local cooperative of artisan weavers.
