ProjectDignidad.org emerged from a Mexican woman’s experiences in southern Mexico and in Cuidad Juárez. Anay Palomeque experienced childhood repeated rape resulting in fistulas and cancer along with abuses she suffered as a young woman working in a maquiladora. She turned that part of her life into a platform that she now owns and stands upon to advocate for women’s rights in Mexico.
Her Mexican Civil Association seeks to improve women’s dignity and to stop gender violence in Mexico through:
Several friends provided the start-up funds to create the functioning women’s shelter. We need ongoing support to continue their education. You can sponsor one woman’s education for $2000 per year, but any contribution will help. Every dollar you donate will go directly to the women’s shelter.
