  • Our organisation empowers indigenous women by producing, distributing and researching about their crafts, aiming to support their financial independence. Indigenous women inspired us: They earn the family’s living, bring up the children, struggle for the preservation of the nature and pass on the indigenous heritage. The strategic focus is on women because they are the strongest link in many indigenous societies, but this is particularly true in the Wayuu culture, as they have a matrilineal kinship structure.

  • Because using sustainable materials in sustainable fashion is not enough! In July and August 2018, for his master's thesis at ETH, Brazilian biochemist Douglas Fernandes DaSilva investigated the relationship between the progressive desertification in the Colombian Guajira and the health of the Wayuu indigenous peoples. Desertification refers to the advance of the desert due to climate change in semi-arid areas, previously used for common human activities. Douglas argues that malnutrition and child mortality are greatly affected by desertification. The reasons for this are water scarcity and low rainfall, which in turn lead to low soil productivity and ultimately to food insecurity. The deterioration of health and the existence of many illnesses are compounded by lack of access to medicine.
Child mortality remains a major burden for the Wayuu, as history has shown. The limited access to water and electricity, as well as malnutrition are factors that may have led to the death of 4,770 children in La Guajira in the last 8 years (Interamerican Commission for Hu-man Rights, 2015).
Remarkably, Fernandes Da Silva’s study shows that the women and families working with Mama Tierra are in far better economic and health conditions than those from other areas in La Guajira. He conducted extensive interviews, as well as medical examinations, with 131 households, including 230 adults and 293 children, in Uribia, Manaure and Nazareth.
Mama Tierra is planning to initiate a pilot project in 2020, with Douglas as project manager within the scope of his of his doctoral thesis. The idea is to create an agricultural model in which sustainable technology is to be used. For example, instead of large-scale irrigation systems, only the roots of crops will be moistened. One of the cornerstones of the project is education, to teach indigenous people how to use these systems and technologies, and to promote sustainable development. One that is in the hands of those who suffer the most from climate change and desertification. #mamatierra #ngo #❤️ #ethicalfashion #changemaker #consciousconsumer  #empoweringwomen #imadeyourclothes #beatpoverty  #sustainableliving #fairfashion #slowfashion
