Fondo Centroamericano de Mujeres

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 grant-making programs, capacity building, accompaniment, monitoring and evaluation.

Women Win began partnering with FCAM in 2011 to promote the use sport as a tool to reach young women and girls and address gender-based violence through multiple programmes across Central America. Hundreds of girls and young women are given the opportunity to come together to learn new life skills and how to overcome various roadblocks, while improving their overall well-being through participating in sport. Women Win also supports FCAM with capacity and organisational development in relation to their overall sports strategy in the region.
