=======> WHO ARE WE ?

=======> WHAT DO WE DO ?

The state of Guanajuato is located in the central part of Mexico. Quite a few of its villages are small, isolated, away from the cities and in the middle of the dry mountains. Their inhabitants live out of agriculture and cattle breeding.
Guanajuato has the 3rd highest rate of migrants from Mexico to the U.S. Most of them are men, who illegally cross the border to the U.S. with the hope of finding a job and making money. Unfortunately, more than half of them will decide not to come back and will stop supporting their family.
Therefore, the women are left alone in desperate need to provide for their children, as well as taking care of the community. We have been to villages where you hardly see a man older that 18.
Mano Rosa goes to these villages to reach the children, the women and the few elder men that remain.
