Fundación Origen, an NGO created by Mariana Baños to support Mexican women in their struggle against violence and poverty, is celebrating its first 20 years of existence.
Mariana began working directly with women in the most vulnerable areas of Mexico during a time when there were no real platforms to support the female population. Through a free telephone help line, Fundación Origen provides expert legal, psychological and medical support to women. There are also now 6 community development centers throughout the country where women learn different activities in order to find the means to support their families. Mariana is also the mother of three young children.
We recently spoke with Mariana about the foundation, her mission and how she balances her life as a mom while running this incredible organization.
