Year One: AMUMRA Web Site

“Now our page is
much more professional”

Last year, Tectonica built a new digital space for AMUMRA (Asociación de Mujeres Unidas, Migrantes y Refugiadas en Argentina), an NGO that fights to ensure the rights of immigrant women in Argentina and supports this at-risk group. Its goal is to help construct a better society through the promotion, defense, and awareness of human rights. "They taught us about everything, even the logo" AMUMRA is born from the needs of refugee and immigrant women longing for human rights at a time when immigration laws did not provide immigrants education and healthcare. They continue to fight to broaden their rights and give support and advice to refugee and immigrant women and their children. "Tectonica helped us so much"
