KIOS Foundation strengthens the realization of human rights by supporting the human rights work of civil society in developing countries. Support is mainly channeled to 6 focus countries in East Africa and South Asia.
Human rights are the foundation for sustainable peace and development, for reducing inequality and for preventing conflicts and humane suffering. We understand human rights as defined in human rights treaties and instruments of the United Nations and the Council of Europe.
IWGIA is an international human rights organization staffed by specialists and advisers on indigenous affairs. IWGIA supports indigenous peoples’ struggle for human rights, self-determination, right to territory, control of land and resources, cultural integrity, and the right to development.
IWGIA was founded in 1968 by anthropologists alarmed about the ongoing genocide on indigenous peoples taking place in the Amazon. The aim was to establish a network of concerned researchers and human right activists to document the situation of indigenous peoples and advocate for an improvement of their rights. www.iwgia.org
