Who we are
We are a feminist fund that was born of a dream: women in all of their diversity would have their rights guaranteed to life, security, physical and emotional wellbeing, and economic, social and environmental justice, and to lead in the decisions that affect their lives and communities.
We believe in feminist and women’s movements, as they have made possible the rights that we now enjoy and those for which we will continue to fight. As part of these movements, FCAM was created with the purpose of contributing to their financial, political, physical and emotional sustainability, and that of the organizations and activists that embody them.
Through its feminist collaboration model, FCAM provides flexible and multi-year general operating support to women’s groups, organizations, and networks, and they are the ones who define their agendas, priorities, strategies and focus areas. We also promote spaces for learning and organizational strengthening, and we facilitate opportunities for groups to meet, exchange knowledge and reflect, and to connect and create alliances.
Through the work done by movements and organizations at the community, local, national, sub-regional and regional levels, we contribute to supporting initiatives that are vital for women’s rights from the local to international level. They include educational, awareness-raising, empowerment, promotion, lobbying, reporting of rights violations, and political advocacy activities, in areas such as: the rights of girls, adolescent and young women, migrant women, domestic workers, free trade zone (maquilas) workers and sex workers; rights of rural, indigenous and Afro-descendant women; rights of women with disabilities; and the rights of women with HIV, among others.
The Fondo Centroamericano de Mujeres (Central American Women’s Fund – FCAM) works with a recruitment and selection firm. At the moment due to the current context, all hiring is on pause. We invite you to keep an eye out on our social media to learn of any new vacancies.
