Leadership School for Indigenous Women in Peru

Indigenous women leaders from different regions of Peru met in the city of Lima to participate in the face-to-face seminar of the Leadership School of Indigenous Women, a joint initiative of the International Indigenous Women Forum (IIWF-FIMI) and FAO. 13 indigenous women representatives of organizations related to women empowerment, nutrition, agriculture and other fields came from diverse regions of the mountain and forest areas of the country to learn about food security, nutrition and human rights. This capacity building programme has also been devised to teach women advocacy tools that will enable them to promote actions in support of food security and nutrition in their communities.
