Our Principles

1. The indigenous peoples have a right to self-govern their territories. These are the environments they live in and their identity, which are essential for their survival and development.

2. The identity and the cultural heritage of the indigenous peoples are the basis for their development, which is directed towards the unlimited exercise of their social, political and economical rights as individuals as well as communities.

3. The intercultural relations should be characterized by mutual respect, reciprocity and exchange.

4. The indigenous peoples, by means of their lawful organizations, should have control over their actions, projects, programmes and policies that affect them in all phases of the intervention.



We support indigenous communities in the development of their institutional, cultural and economic capacities, in order to generate equitable and inclusive opportunities in local governments and civil society.

We want to achieve this, through the development and strengthening of their organization and the sustainable use of natural resources, the indigenous communities will manage their territory autonomously, strengthen their cultural identity and improve their income.
