PADF’s work in Mexico spans decades including reconstruction in the wake of Mexico’s 1985 earthquake. PADF’s methodology for work in Mexico is to build multi-sector alliances in which resources from several sources can be combined to work towards common goals. This approach has been used across work to reduce human trafficking and child labor, as well as work on a broader community level.
Current work spans the area of human rights with work to protect the rights of vulnerable populations including LGBTI individuals and persons with disabilities, as well as work to prevent migration and protect migrant rights. PADF is also invested in promoting dignified work opportunities in Mexico, including support to domestic workers, construction personnel and others who can be supported in building their capacity and advocating for improved labor conditions. At the same time, building on its longstanding work on disaster preparedness and reconstruction, PADF works with vulnerable communities in areas affected by earthquakes and other hazards so they can rebuild from past disasters and be prepared for the future. Overall, PADF’s work in Mexico is focused on reaching population groups and communities that are the most vulnerable while linking them to support networks and resources that can assist in their advancement.
