1. Donate & Give
We crowdfund often. By helping us get your network to donate, you enable some of our most critical progress. You can donate to a specific project or you can give a small recurring donation monthly to enable our growth. How about just 1 dollar per day?
2. Become Angel Investors
One of our greatest innovations was to create an incubator for entrepreneurs with vulnerable backrounds. We discovered huge talents and potentials, so we designed a way to pair projects with Angel Investors. We usually need small amounts of money, to develop a great small company. Find out more!
3. Volunteer with us
Volunteering forms the lifeblood of who we are and provides us with a rich, diverse and powerful foundation from which we can grow and strengthen our efforts to make effective and valuable changes in the lives of the communities in Cartagena and the Colombian Caribbean. By volunteering in FEM you will be enriched by a powerful and experienced team with intergenerational, interdisciplinary, interethnic, and international inputs.
