    Any grant writers for Esperanza? Here's a potential grant for the Oaxaca program: First Peoples Worldwide -- Keepers of the Earth, Arctic and Americas

    First Peoples Worldwide makes grants through the Keepers of the Earth Fund to support grassroots projects of indigenous organizations. The initiative "Traditional and Contemporary Self Governance" (TCSG) is to strengthen indigenous organizations in their governance and decision making. The Fund's interests include indigenous land use, management of natural resources, climate change, and food security -- among others. The TCSG is open to indigenous organizations in the Arctic and the Americas who have organizational bank accounts or fiscal sponsors. Grants will range from US$5 thousand to US$20 thousand. The application deadline is 31 May 2012. http://www.firstpeoplesworldwide.org/grantsTCSG.asp
