" “I am elated to be part of this great network. Being a Millennium Fellow will allow me not only to acquire new learnings regarding leadership and social entrepreneurship, but will expand my creativity and systemic thinking. It is also a big opportunity to connect with people all around the world who are also socially driven.” "
Millennium Fellowship Project: AmplifiK
AmplifiK is an initiative that pretends to create safe spaces for young Mexican women to learn to identify gender-violent situations, impacting, principally, on SDG #5: Gender Equality and, secondly, #4: Quality Education.
The main objective of this project is to conscientize Mexican women between the ages of 11 and 18 years old about topics regarding gender violence situations and their personal development as women in the society they live in. Some of these being: micromachismos, which are the daily “normalized” patriarcal conducts, sexual education, entrepreneurship, healthy relationships, among others.
The channels through which this information will be transmitted are two:
Social media. Through which posts and dynamics will be shared, in order to create an online community.
Workshops for girls in public schools, orphanages and cultural and sports entities. These will be carried out together with experts in the topic, such as academics, psychologists, etc.
