THE FIGHT AGAINST dispossession
A self-sufficient people
Thank you for visiting us
We are a global mechanism that brings together Indigenous Women from seven sociocultural regions.
FIMI is focused on advocacy, capacity building, economic empowerment and leadership development.
We offer tools. With the aim of promoting the leadership of Indigenous Women, we offer a collective space for training and capacity building. Within the Global School, Indigenous Women share strategies for the defence and promotion of their individual and collective rights, which will allow them to have an influence over various spaces.
We co-invest resources. At the Ayni Fund, we promote solidarity and the reciprocal exchange of human, financial and material resources. We support economic, environmental and social development projects that promote Well-Being, that is, the comprehensive well-being of Indigenous Peoples, in harmony with nature and the cosmos.
We join forces. Through this program, we promote the political participation and advocacy of Indigenous Women and their organizations at the local, regional, national and international levels. We promote an active participation in key decision-making spaces, the fulfillment of international agreements, and the strengthening of networks of Indigenous Women.
We facilitate the exchange of knowledge. Through research with an intercultural approach, we generate materials that value indigenous ancestral knowledge and worldview. These investigations become instruments for the advocacy and future development of Indigenous Peoples and Women.
We are not alone. Working collaboratively with regional networks, sister organizations and community of donors gives us more strength to fight for our individual and collective rights.
