Overordnede mål :

Indigenous peoples and organizations in the Amazon are able to more effectively combat exclusion and discrimination, and protect their territory, environment, rights and traditions.

Umiddelbare mål :

Young Kukama indigenous women in Loreto, Peru, will have increased their knowledge, skills, tools and networks to protect their human rights and the rights of nature, increase their participation in decision making in their communities and organizations, and influence local and national actors.

Målgrupper :

Primary target group: · 40 young indigenous women between 15- and 29-years old belonging to two Kukama communities in Loreto province in the Peruvian Amazon (Santa Rita and Santa Rosa). Secondary target groups: · An estimated total of 80 indigenous women in the two communities, through replication activities. · Approximately 500 women in urban areas in Peru, through educational initiatives and through the articulation of the work carried out by young indigenous women with feminist movements at the national level.


This intervention will focus on the empowerment of indigenous women, who experience disproportionate levels of discrimination and injustice, in their struggle to have their rights respected. Through a new partnership between AI DK, AI Peru and ONAMIAP, this intervention seeks to design and pilot an Itinerant Human Rights Training School for young Amazonian indigenous women. The intervention will design and pilot the Training School in two 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. This pilot will allow the partners to validate a methodology to design a Training School for young indigenous Amazonian women and with this the intervention partners will be able to expand the school to more communities.
