WHO WE ARE
Fundación En Vía is a non-profit organization that works to empower women to better support themselves and their families. We use funds generated through responsible tourism to provide interest-free loans and educational programs to entrepreneurial women in 5 communities in the Tlacolula Valley of Oaxaca, Mexico.
We started off as a pilot project in 2008, with the idea to have a different experience for tourist and bring benefits for communities at the same time.
The organization was founded by Carlos Topete (Oaxaca) and Emily Berens (United States) in 2010, as Fundación Emprende, Intercambia y Aprende A. C.
We are better known as Fundación En Vía
We support communities of Tlacolula Valley
We are a small staff and are mostly made up of a big team of volunteers
Tax Information: Fundación En Vía is a registered asociación civil / civil association in Mexico. We are registered as Fundación Emprende, Intercambia, y Aprende, A.C.
