Elizabetha Consuegra

My name is Elizabetha Consuegra. I am a person with a psichosocial disability, working in Colectivo Chuhcán, the only organization in Mexico City formed and directed by persdons with this condition. I began as a volunteer in 2013. One of my roles as a Proyect Coordinator is about searching for funds, like yours and others. like the Inter American Foundation. I have become a specialist , a defender, as well as an activist in human rights, specially in women´s rieghts, sexual and reproductive rights. These women are mostly forced to be sterilized even if they do not want to. We´d like to join the network because we´re sure that people in our conditions need to be understood, to recieve funds in order to get a good job, not just charity, not only in our country, but around the world.
