Programa Mujer Indígena de la Organizacion Regional Aidesep Ucayali

The ORAU Women’s Program was born out of the need to organize and strengthen capacities to defend our territory and culture. The objective of the Women’s Program is, therefore, to promote spaces for Indigenous women’s capacity development and active participation in the various spaces of dialogue and decision-making at the community, local, regional, and national levels, while forging women leaders who promote the development and defense of their territory and the construction of a society with gender equality and democracy. Indigenous women in the Ucayali Region are facing double pressure, as land defenders and as invisible actors in decision-making spaces.
