Centro de Protección de Mujer a Mujer
The Centro de Protección de Mujer a Mujer serves victims of domestic and gender-based violence in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico. The shelter was founded in 2001 by a group of persons who identified with and wanted to assist victims of domestic and gender-based violence. The center provides food, shelter, counseling, and job skills training to women and children who have experienced domestic violence.
The vision for the shelter was born in the heart of its director and founder, the Señora Angela Fierro Sandoval. Ms. Sandoval experienced domestic violence in her home as a child. As a result of her childhood experiences, she wanted to make sure that any woman facing similar experiences would have someplace to turn for help.
Libertad de Mujer a Mujer
Libertad is located in the Sierra Tarahumara in Mexico. Libertad was also founded by Ms. Sandoval, and faces even greater challenges with funding while the clients face even greater barriers to escaping domestic violence.
Do you know of a foreign organization serving abused women and children or orphans that would benefit from the support of a 501(c)(3)? ISSF provides technical assistance and resources to organizations in developing countries. To be eligible, the foreign organization must be organized and operated as a charitable organization and meet the same criteria as a 501(c)(3) would. Interested organizations must be willing to submit required reports to ISSF and must undergo a determination of eligibility by the ISSF board. Affiliates must also speak Spanish or have someone who speaks fluent English.
