Land is Life’s grants programs support the efforts of Indigenous peoples to promote and protect their rights, implement community-based development projects, and build the capacity of their representative organizations. Grants are made for local capacity building workshops, medical emergencies, legal support, campaigns, regional gatherings, travel to regional and international meetings, self-determined development programs, and general expenses for Indigenous peoples’ organizations.
Since its founding, Land is Life has played an important role in the struggles of Indigenous peoples around the world, working in partnership with communities to advance their rights locally, nationally and internationally. Today, Indigenous communities and organizations from around the world – from the heart of the Amazon, to the plains and forests of Africa, the islands of the Pacific, and the Arctic tundra – depend on the strategic, financial and moral partnership that Land is Life provides.
What began as an informal coalition has grown into a global movement. Together, we are working towards the day when Indigenous peoples will be recognized as valued members of the international community and are allowed to assume their rightful role as partners in the search for a more equitable, just and sustainable world. Together, we are helping humanity to awaken, so that we can remember how to live in a way that is responsible to future generations.
