Via International Site Visit in Tijuana

November 1, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Have you been looking for an opportunity to get a closer look at the local programs supported by Women’s Empowerment? Join us on a site visit to Tijuana and meet the women WE supports through the Via International program! This special trip will also include a unique opportunity to learn about local festivities for Día de los Muertos.

Meeting Time & Location:
The tour will take place on Tuesday, November 1, 2022 from 9:00 a.m. to approximately 5:00 p.m. We will meet at the border, walk across together, and board the bus for transport to several Via sites.

On this tour…


The date of our tour is planned to coincide with a special Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) festival at the Mixteco school, “The House of Wise Words.” This is a bilingual school with many indigenous families from Oaxaca and many who have been deported from the US. WE supports a women’s solidarity loan group through the Via Migrante program at this site. Additional stops for our itinerary include:

  • Another Via Migrante program site for women of the Colonia Santa Fe group founded by women who have been deported.
  • ESTIMA program meeting – the Via program WE has supported with women who have been in the sex trade and/or trafficked. WE is supporting the nutrition/ecology programming, group engagement, and loans.
  • And, lunch!

We will meet with Via staff, as well as women participating in Via programs. The $60 site visit fee will cover the bus, lunch, and stipends for program participants.

We only have space for 20 WE members (and guests), so reserve your spot today!

NOTE:  All foreigners, regardless their nationality, are required to present a valid and non-expired passport or travel document when entering Mexico.
