Building Transnational Bridges: Remittances, Diaspora, and Opportunities in Mexico

This report focuses on the results and lessons learned from the projects funded in Puebla, Mexico under the HIP program “Building Transnational Bridges, Remittances, Diaspora and Opportunities in Mexico.” The program was created in order to expand the work that HIP had begun in the transnational field and at the same time, develop and test models of transnational philanthropy and social change. Specifically, the program sought to identify and fund productive initiatives in the State of Puebla, and Guanajuato which were aimed at generating employment opportunities and/or increasing income in communities affected by migration to the U.S. and that would count on the participation of members and migrant organizations abroad.
