A call from MADRE's partner organization the International Indigenous Women's Forum (FIMI).

The International Indigenous Women's Forum (IIWF/FIMI) in its commitment to the empowerment of Indigenous women's human rights and Indigenous peoples' collective human rights around the world, is pleased to open the first Indigenous Women's Fund Call for Proposals from 15 October 2009 - 15 January 2010.

  • Educational Empowerment
  • Economic Empowerment
  • Political Participation
  • Institutional Strengthening

For the first grant cycle, proposal budgets must not exceed $5,000 USD. In order to apply, organizations must complete the requirements found on our website.
