WE PROMOTE DIVERSITY
We are a non-profit association founded by Latin American migrants, returnees and interested Germans, coming from different parts of Latin America and Europe. We also bring different perspectives and expertise. Our multicultural and multiprofessional team lives and values diversity and implements various projects on a national as well as international level.
Our vision is to address the pain and historical trauma between Latin America and Europe, to facilitate the arrival of migrants from Latin America in Germany, and to promote a sustainable transformation process in society that supports inclusion, diversity, equal opportunities, human rights defense and participation.
We believe that an education that allows a critical approach to complex issues and different perspectives is a great enrichment for learning both intellectually and personally. Therefore, we promote process-oriented learning and awareness of power structures.
A integral vision of human health does not only help us, to understand ourselves better, butallows us to actively participate in social life. Therefore, we work to create healthy spaces that promote a healthy mind in a healthy body.
In this area we dedicate ourselves exclusively to questions of climate change and bieten den Stimmen lateinamerikanischer Aktivist*innen Raum. For this reason we try, , to look at climate change from an intersectoral background.
Another form of cooperation could make it possible to develop alternatives to improve the situation in the respective countries of origin and, in addition, to seek possibilities for return.
Through our own history of migration we have a special bridging function between Latin America and Germany, mediate between cultures and help to eliminate conflicts.
What we do
MamaKiya works on integration and was founded to support and empower Latin Americans in Europe, mainly in terms of social inclusion and participation. For this reason we at MamaKiya join forces to make our society more just and inclusive for all people. With our anti-discrimination work we are shaping a diverse society in Europe.
We create spaces for participation, empowerment and reflection. These enable the exchange of knowledge and perspectives in the social, economic and political fields. In addition to providing orientation for people with a history of exiles and migration, we offer an interactive forum in which the living situations of many immigrants in Germany are reflected upon and informed. In this way we shape diversity and inclusion together with those affected.
As part of our international activities, we empower people with projects on health, entrepreneurship, gender equality and climate justice in Latin America, thus promoting their empowerment in the long term. In particular, we support the indigenous peoples of Latin America in preserving their cultural identity and defending their human rights.

"After Amanda's workshop, more and more examples came to mind that illustrate how women's oppression is related to the destruction of nature. Both are seen by a patriarchal system as resources that can be exploited."
"I think eco feminism is a way of being regenerative; with the earth, with ourselves, with our relationships and our work. That's what I learned: to think and to live in cycles."
