Sports practices to strengthen the leadership of Indigenous Women

FIMI, through the AYNI program and in alliance with Women Win, has financed sports projects for organizations that promote leadership and the rights of Indigenous Women, recognizing that sports have physical, mental and spiritual benefits in the lives of individuals and peoples. This research is thus carried out as a way to contribute, from the experiences of the organizations, elements that allow to explain the relationship between the practice of sports and the strengthening of leadership and empowerment of Indigenous Women. In this setting, the aim is to promote the visibility of the opportunities that sports bring to women in different ways (cultural, spiritual, rights, economic, etc.).
