Fondo Centroamericano de Mujeres (FCAM, Central American Women’s Fund) was created in 2003 to contribute to guaranteeing the right of Central American women to physical and emotional integrity, economic justice and to promote their participation as leaders in making decisions that affect their lives and communities.

FCAM supports grassroots organisations led by and comprised of women, with a special emphasis on young women that work to promote and defend their human rights through grantmaking programs, capacity building, accompaniment, monitoring and evaluation.

In addition to grantmaking, FCAM supports the consolidation of partner groups and organizations through its capacity-building program, which shares knowledge and tools, and provides opportunities for exchange and the creation of networks and alliances.

The work strategy of FCAM is based on strengthening the women’s movement in Central America, and the leaders and organizations that appreciate a diversity of cultures, ideologies and sexual orientations.
