OrigiNations works directly with indigenous peoples and local communities in Africa, Asia and Latin America. The communities request, initiate and implement the projects together with us.
OrigiNations is also cooperating with national and international partners for human rights, cultural heritage and nature conservation, such as the global network of “Indigenous Peoples’ and Community Conserved Territories and Areas” (ICCA Consortium).
OrigiNations currently carries out a long-term project in Central African Republic in collaboration with the Central African NGO MEFP („Maison de l’Enfant et la Femme Pygmées“), the pan-African indigenous network IPACC („Indigenous Peoples of Africa Co-ordinating Committee“) and WWF Germany, supported by the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
In Peru we currently work with the youth group „Qoriorqo“ in Andahuaylillas in the Andes. We also cooperate with various indigenous federations and the Peruvian environmental and indigenous rights organization IBC („Instituto del Bien Común“ – Institute for the Common Good) in the Amazon and in the region of Oxapampa.
