What is Semillas?

Semillas is an organization that supports women’s groups and indigenous leaders with the common goal of improving the status of women in Mexico. 


In words of Tiaré Scanda

I believe that Semillas is a serious organization because all of the women that work there have conviction, are absolutely committed and always well prepared.

“The type of projects that they support, although they are for women and carried out by women, benefit all of society.





Semillas listens to women who have initiative

“Semillas is an organization that believes in me, believes in indigenous women. It trusts that we can make changes for our daughters’ futures, and it listens to women who have initiative. With Semillas I have learned to assert my rights and exercise them.”

Working for dignified and respectful childbirth

Jacoba de Jesús Hipólito is a Purépecha woman. She was born into a large family in the community of Cucuchucho, Michoacán. At 18, she decided to leave her parents and 11 siblings behind to participate in a childbirth course in the community of Cuanajo. She began working as an assistant during childbirths, but she felt she wasn’t sufficiently prepared to handle this task, so she approached the community’s midwives.
