International Indigenous Women's Forum
International Indigenous Women’s Forum (FIMI- by its Spanish acronym) was established 15 years ago as a global network which links organizations from Asia, Africa, Arctic, Pacific and America and advocates for indigenous women’s specific issues at an international level. FIMI uses a holistic approach that includes the combination of strategies to promote empowerment and leadership. FIMI conceives indigenous women as right holders and recognizes local expertise as the basis for achieving sustainability. The Indigenous Women‘s Fund - AYNI is the very first fund lead for and by Indigenous women. It is the economic and philanthropic arm of FIMI.
