AXIOS – Misión Mujer NGO emerges in 1998 through the initiative of Barbara Miranda to develop a preventive program of human formation and values for adolescents. At the beginning it was mainly directed to women and it was called AXIOS Club. Later on it is transformed into «AXIOS Program» which is currently given in public mixed middle schools of vulnerable areas thanks to the agreement made with Jalisco’s Secretary of Education.
For 19 years now, AXIOS – which in Greek means values – assists adolescents with a low intermediate and low social economic level who live in vulnerable suburbs.
In these suburbs the problems such as drug addiction, vandalism, gang groups, early pregnancy and neglect are constant and demand immediate action. As a result of the effort made to take this experience of AXIOS Program to international sceneries, the «International Area» was strengthen as one of the main pillars of the association.
