We take the adage “act locally, think globally” a step further. We believe that people everywhere can bring about change not just in their small corner of the world, but also in other small corners halfway around the world.

Our work to support Indigenous Peoples relies on a global network of communities, organizations, and individuals—all working together. Here are four ways you can get involved:

You can become part of our Indigenous communities support network by:
● Joining our newsletter to get the latest updates on our work at FPW
● Visiting us on our Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube pages
● Following our blog
● Sharing these connections with your own networks

Every year we receive hundreds of proposals for excellent development projects, but unfortunately we don’t have enough grant money to fund them all. You can help. Click on the link below to find out more about one of the important projects we need to fund, and consider making a donation to make that grant possible. We guarantee that 100% of your donation will go directly to the community organization conducting the project.

“Indigenous Peoples are often viewed like the aliens in the movie Avatar, with its romantic notions of the noble savage. Humanity would be better served to think of us as equals, holding pieces of the puzzle that will be required in order to sustain life on this planet.”
