During the last half of 2012, THP-Mexico had its first inter-regional meeting and worked with 21,380 grassroots partners across 22 communities of nine municipalities in three states: Oaxaca, Chiapas and Zacatecas. In Chiapas community partners received training from the National Institute for Cooperatives Development to begin to commercializa products in New York. In Zacatecas, THP Mexico help revised current plans for the poultry farm.
Each year, The Hunger Project joins billions of people around the world in celebrating International Women's Day (IWD) to honor and raise a voice for women around the world. Particularly relevant given recent violent acts against women, this year's IWD theme was “A promise is a promise: Time for action to end violence against women.” On March 8, 2013, thousands of women and men partnered with The Hunger Project around the world to advocate for equality, prosperity and empowerment for all women – see how.
THP-Mexico encourages both personal and collective autonomy through trainings that empower community partners to rely less on direct government transactions and increase their skills for self-negotiation, income generation and the improvement of the quality of their lives.
