Huellas que Trascienden combats poverty by turning, in an innovative and integral way, the talents that the indigenous women of Chiapas have into income for their households.
We work on five elemental fronts:
1.We provide an interest free loan in the form of goods for them to start a productive project.
2.We offer the workshop A Business that Transcends, made up of 12 basic business courses in their native tongue, to guide them in the beginning stages of their projects.
3.We monitor their projects through consulting sessions for up to 3 years to ensure their success.
4.We assist the participants in selling their products in a fair market and without intermediaries.
5.We promote cultural exchange tourism to their communities so that cash flow reaches them.
The points mentioned beforehand result in the possibility to save money and better their living conditions.
We are creating empowered and productive women in order to build a better Mexico.
Workshops and Courses to Indigenous Women, Tourism Development to Indigenous Communities, Marketing and Sales of Handmade Crafts and Coffee, General Administration (reports, statistics, planning), Fund Procurement, Product and Graphic Design, Social Media Management.
We do not provide accommodation or meals, but can recommend accommodations near our Organization. San Cristobal de las Casas is a very cheap place to live in.
We do not charge any fees.
Huellas que Trascienden will be greatly benefited by Online Volunteers who are able to give part of their time in order to improve other people´s lives. Thanks to technology, we can now help around the world from our very own home. We constantly need to update information, design new brochures, keep our website up to date, transmit in social media what we are doing, raise money to continue operating, among other things.
