Our Grantmaking in Mexico

The Foundation began making grants in Mexico in 1986 and opened an office in Mexico in 1992. Today, MacArthur operates three programs in Mexico: population and reproductive health, human rights and justice, and migration and human mobility. Support is provided to expert civil society organizations working to improve young people's access to reproductive and sexual health and to improve maternal health outcomes in rural indigenous areas; to improve access to justice through promoting reform of the criminal justice system; and to facilitate exchange, dialogue and initiatives that improve the human condition of migrants and their families.
