About Us

Sociedad Mexicana Pro Derechos de la Mujer (Semillas) was the first women’s fund established in the global South and remains the only fund of its kind in Mexico. Semillas trusts that local women’s organizations in Mexico are able to identify their own needs and propose viable solutions. The role of Semillas is therefore to provide its grantees with the resources and support required to push forward these solutions and achieve social change. Semillas contributes to strengthening the women’s movement in Mexico through three main social investment strategies: 1) Providing seed funding to grassroots organizations and leaders; 2) Facilitating training on issues such as human rights, leadership, institutional strengthening, and communications strategies; and 3) Linking partners working in different regions of the country in order to build alliances and enhance their impact.

Semillas currently supports local projects on a wide range of women’s rights issues, such as sexual and reproductive rights, labor rights, economic empowerment, and land rights.
