ATIX Mulher (Brazil) is the female branch of the Indigenous organisation of Women’s Movement of the Xingu Indigenous Reservation Association. During the pandemic in 2020, the inhabitants of the Xingu Indigenous Reservation were heavily affected in their food security. Atix Mulher has campaigned for food, hygiene products and agricultural tools for the 16 ethnic groups of the reservation. It has helped gather food donations and has set out a collective crowdfunding that has benefitted 130 villages. Currently, items such as crafts and honey, produced by the villagers, help with capital to keep the small agriculture-based businesses running.
Starting in 2012, in the municipality of São Félix do Xingu, in southeastern Pará, the initiative has supported 310 family members with the “Cocoa More Sustainable” project to enhance the recovery and regeneration of around 1,000 hectares of cocoa plantations through agroforestry systems.
In 2015, the Fundão Rejects Dam breach in Minas Gerais threw millions of tons of toxic minerals into the river Doce, which were carried through 600 km until Linhares, where the quilombo is located, heavily impacting the area.
