Huellas que Trascienden dates back to 2013, when on a trip from Monterrey to Chiapas, I became aware of the extreme poverty and inequality of the region.
Regardless of the cultural diversity and traditions, the great economic and cultural barriers and the lack of knowledge that the indigenous women have make eradicating poverty seem practically impossible.
Hence, Huellas que Trascienden has struggled to break down these barriers and support the women we work with to improve their quality of life, and provide them with access to opportunities that can change their situation.
Director and founder Mauricio Raigosa Treviño.
We work along women of the indigenous communities of Chiapas so that they can improve their living conditions and feel proud of their culture through processes in economic, skills, cultural and professional development.
