To mobilize financial and technical resources in support of women’s initiatives, which aim to advance gender equality as the path towards a just and equitable social change.:

We believe that when resources get where you least expect it, and when initiatives and ideas of the most marginalized women are supported, an infinite horizon of changes is widely opened. Fondo de Mujeres del Sur was established in 2007 in Cordoba, Argentina, and is currently working in 3 countries: Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay. Since its foundation in 2007, FMS has mobilized more than 2.1 million USD to the region, delivering more than 390 grants to 80 women organizations (by May 2015). Working areas

•  Economic, Social, and Labor Rights

•  Environmental and Cultural Rights

•  Sexual and Reproductive Rights

•  Women’s Political Participation•  Sexual Diversity

•  Gender Violence

Empowering Environmental Defenders of the Chaco Americano


This program was designed by the Fondo de Mujeres del Sur (Argentina, Uruguay y Paraguay), in partnership with Fundación Plurales (Argentina) and the Centro de Capacitación e Investigación de la Mujer Campesina de Tarija (Bolivia).

Our main goals with this initiative are:

1. Provide finantial support to grassroots women' groups that defend and promote their environmental rights and their communities, They are women who fight for the defense of the right to a land, food sovereignty, the right to water against spraying pesticides, the recovery / appreciation of cultures and ancestral knowledge, and political participation of women in their communities and decision areas that affect them.


Global Alliance for Green and Gender Action – (GAGGA)

In 2016, Fondo de Mujeres del Sur joined the Global Alliance for Green and Gender Action (GAGGA), which brings flexible financial support to grassroot groups and social movements which protect women and environmental rights worldwide. The aim is to strengthen and unify the capabilities of grassroots groups to lobby and advocate with and for women to claim their rights to water, food security and a clean, healthy and safe environment.

Through this partnership, the FMS brings financial and technical support to 11 amazing groups led by women from Paraguay and Bolivia that promote the right to access to clean water, food safety and a healthy and safe environment. GAGGA is led by Fondo Centramericano de Mujeres (FCAM) with the participation of Both ENDS and Mama Cash, and the World Resources Institute (WRI) as strategic partner.

Along with the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs as financial partner, the GAGGA program was set out in January 2016, for a period of 5 years at global scale. The FMS in the Southern Cone is among the Funds that take part in this program.

What do women rights and environmental justice have in common? In some countries where high levels of gender inequality exist, women are four times more likely to die in floods than men.  Women and girls are marginalized, abused and ravished, and although women have the most important and risky role in managing natural resources, they do not have free access to land or decision-making about their life and surrounding environment, or to a comprehensive education.
