10 Years
of CAMY Fund – A Celebration

Throughout 2024, SIF is celebrating the CAMY Fund’s 10th year supporting youth changemakers. We have partnered with more than 100 youth-led organizations across eight countries in the region, enabling them to design and implement projects, supporting their wellbeing and capacity, and facilitating peer support networks building so that they can reach their full potential to drive change in their communities and countries.

Join us on this journey, starting with the story of CAMY Fund and sharing with your friends and networks. 

Colective Care Initiative

Activists and defenders in Central America and México work in authoritarian and high-risk contexts, and it is critical to prioritize their well-being so that they can continue to work on behalf of their communities.

Our Collective Care Initiative was created created during COVID-19 pandemic and has evolved to promote the psych-emotional well-being of activists and human rights defenders. It includes cycles of collective care, wellness workshops and safe spaces to share self-care experiences.

As SIF’s CAMY Fund, we are committed to providing collective care in the region, contributing to the long-term sustainability of social movements.
