Families that have one or more relatives abroad face challenges that include securing investment for sound business initiatives to improve livelihoods, raising children alone and depression as a result of separation. Instituto de Investigación y Práctica Social y Cultural A.C. (IIPSOCULTA) provides financial assistance through grassroots development projects in Guerrero, Mexico, Puebla and Tlaxcala that fund cultural initiatives and increase means of self-support for community members. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Mexico. IIPSOCULTA’s activities strengthen grassroots organizations through education and training and build peer-to-peer learning and action networks.
