City of Munich (Germany) – The Asháninka people (Peru)
Regular visits of Asháninka representatives make an important contribution to the City of Munich’s educational work. During their visits, the guests raise awareness of the impact both climate change and natural resource extraction has on their lives. Munich also supports the Ashánika through publicity work and helps strengthen their territorial and cultural rights with numerous smaller projects. In May 2020 Munich supported the Asháninka who have been hit particularly hard by the Covid 19 pandemic with emergency aid amounting to 15,000 euros. Learn more.
