Indigenous Communities ACT - We impACT
An online platform to empower indigenous communities to improve their livelihoods
We are developing an online digital platform that will enable indigenous communities of the world to interconnect with people, like you, that care about directly contributing to improving their livelihoods.
During the first lockdown last March, when the whole world was affected by pandemia, we were very concerned about the most vulnerable, marginalized populations, like indigenous people. Not only their poor access to healthcare led and still leads whole communities to being hit by pandemia, but also the virus finds them already weakened, as they often can’t even afford their daily food. Repeated lockdowns increase both their food and economic insecurity. They lose their already precarious informal (for local authorities) daily works, and together with their traditional lands and territories, they also lose their traditional livelihoods.
Indigenous people face existential threats from rising deforestation, anti-environment and anti-indigenous policies, and the COVID-19 pandemic. The survival of their communities is at stake (6% of global population), and so is the survival of their Elders who detain their traditional wisdom, their cultural heritage, and protect the environment together with 80% of the world’s biodiversity.
CommuniTACT is designed to give access to technology to indigenous communities, thus access to the world and to equal opportunities, reducing inequalities within and among countries (Sustainable Development Goal 10). We will mobilise and empower indigenous communities to take action towards the improvement of their livelihoods based on their own ideas, resources and projects. We are giving a voice to the most underrepresented, to self-define their communities, their art and cosmo-theory, their visions for the future, their projects and needs, so that the world, the platform users, may discover their unique identity and challenges, from their own perspective.
Together we can impACT their lives. Your donations will reach them directly through our platform to support their livelihoods, encourage the sustainable production of their traditional handcrafts (you will be receiving one as a thank you gift) and allow them to work towards the goals they have set with their registered projects which will be supported by the platform’s donors. This brings us closer to Sustainable Development Goal 8: to promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all.
Contributing to their causes and projects, not only do we impact and improve the traditional communities’ lives, but also ours. We create positive change for our collective world destiny in the sense of oneness, as indigenous wisely conceive it, for our environmental sustainability, for our planet!
An online digital platform to interconnect the international community with indigenous people of the world. Empowering remote indigenous communities to defend their rights, to benefit from equal opportunities and to connect with the world, out of their isolation. We aim to facilitate their access to technology and to allow them to directly receive the international attention, respect and financial support they deserve, so that they may progressively move towards the sustainable future they envision.
