"You cannot hope to build a better world without improving people. Each of us must work for his or her own improvement" - Marie Curie

In the CEDEHM, we conceive education as a process of collective, inclusive, plural, active construction, which allows us to cement a critcal understanding of reality and a transformative desire.


The purpose of education is to develop and implement institutional strategies of formation, awareness-raising, and training, from the perspectives of human rights and of gender, to the beneficiaries, human rights defenders, and public servants with whom the CEDEHM works, with the aim of strengthening their skills in connection with the guarantee and defense of human rights, within the framework of the organization’s program areas.


The CEDEHM is a state and national reference for forums, conferences, and trainings given. The speakers of these projects are experts in the topics that are taught, and the methodology and logistics of the trainings are based on general and specific objectives that generate awareness, knowledge, and tools in each thematic area.
