Both in our country and throughout Latin America, women belonging to indigenous peoples live in permanent situations of discrimination, sometimes rooted in poverty, sometimes in ethnic identity, and almost always in the status of women.

However, despite these conditions of inequality, in recent years has begun to make more visible public participation of women in the areas of political participation and organizational processes, often referring to claims for compliance with rights.

From this perspective we think that it is fundamental to promote the empowerment of indigenous women, aiming at their active participation both in the proposals and the design of public policies, as well as in training instances and spaces for reflection on their problems.

Likewise, we consider it essential to value these concepts in the development of all the projects we carry out in each of the Foundation’s work areas.
