Women's Fund

Investing in initiatives that boost the autonomy and empowerment of girls and women.

Por que Amazônia?
A Amazônia tem a maior biodiversidade do planeta e é um dos maiores reservatórios de água doce do mundo. alimenta o sistema de chuvas no sudeste brasileiro. Em outros países, regula a qualidade do ar ao absorver enormes quantidades de carbono da atmosfera e mantém a temperatura da superfície do planeta entre 2 e 4 graus mais fria do que se não tivesse a floresta. No Brasil, o bioma ocupa metade do território e faz parte da Amazônia Legal, área que abrange nove estados e onde vivem cerca de 23 milhões de pessoas - a maior parte da população indígena do país, com mais de 180 povos, mais de 1000 comunidades quilombolas e inúmeras comunidades ribeirinhas.

Neste momento, o território está entre os mais afetados e expostos à pandemia. A região Norte tem os piores índices de infraestrutura hospitalar. Com as atenções voltadas à pandemia, a atividade ilegal de garimpeiros e madeireiros tem se intensificado, ampliando os riscos para a população indígena. A dificuldade de acesso à informação, a políticas públicas, cuidados médicos qualificado e de acesso aos territórios, além da pouca imunidade ao novo vírus, tornam a ameaça ainda maior.
About the Fund
Gender equality and women's empowerment are fundamental to achieving just, healthy and humane social and economic development. Since our foundation was created, we have invested in organizations that promote the rights and opportunities of girls and women all over Brazil, with a focus on economic and social justice. The Women's Fund was created in 2014 to channel resources in a more structured and systematic way for these actions.
