The Phase II of the intervention will still focus on the empowerment of indigenous women, who experience disproportionate levels of discrimination and injustice, in their struggle to have their rights respected and identity recognised. Through the partnership between AIDK, AIPE and ONAMIAP, the phase II of the intervention seeks to further strengthening the Itinerant Human Rights Training School for young Amazonian indigenous women in three Kukama communities. The process will be developed in a participatory manner with Kukama women over 9 months. It will use a bottom-up approach in which the needs, questions and interests of the target group will direct the design of the intervention, to ensure that it connects closely to their sociocultural context and lived reality. Phase II will involve the grassroots organisation WKK, and will be moving from education to action, in which the women will design and implement own campaigns and advocacy actions and engage with neighbour communities.
