Welcome to Atzin
Atzin is a non-profit humanitarian organization registered in Mexico, with sister associations in Canada and USA. Atzin assists rural people, particularly indigenous women, to attain better life opportunities, stronger cultural wellbeing, and greater self-sufficiency with more peaceful governance. Starting in 1997 and emerging gradually in response to community needs, Atzin programs cut across four integrated sectors: Health and Healing; Income Generation for Women; Community Education and Literacy; and Environment, Water and Sanitation. The programs are based on principles of social participation; investigation with action; and environmental and economic sustainability.
