ABOUT

PSYDEH is a Mexican NGO governed by our mission, vision and values.

Our work is co-led by native women partners. We listen. We engage. We produce novel programs and projects in the Sierra Otomí-Tepehua region, Hidalgo, central Mexico.

With female founders, an all women board, Mexican and international funders and friends and a majority indigenous and female team, we:

VALUE the innate capacity of Mexican people,

LOOK to indigenous wisdom on community organizing, as well as democracy principles, and human development science as knowledge sources,

KNOW that laws are based on human rights and are the instrument with which citizens construct what they imagine to be possible for their communities,

UNDERSTAND that rights come with responsibilities; laws are only as impactful as citizens make them,

TRUST that our empowerment work is needed and that integrating science, organizing practices, the spirit of rights and the letter of the law leads to boosting citizen demand for, and work towards, stronger communities, as well as supports responsible supply by government in the form of quality basic services.
