We want to express our gratitude to our funders for providing AYMARA with seed funding and investing in our mission. A big thanks to all of them because they have enabled AYMARA’s take off and helped us move on to the phase of sustainable growth.
Our value proposition for service delivery includes an outcome based approach to ensure performance and efficiency.
We partner with research institutions and universities to conduct bespoke consultations to analyse the dynamics of Latin American communities, and study trends on issues, habits, culture, health and socioeconomic conditions. We expect our partners to provide sustainable solutions to ethnic minorities’ social problems not adequately addressed by the public and private sectors.
Consultations are part of our advocacy work. AYMARA’s collaborations with partners, researchers, policy makers, and the media help to advance the integration of ethnic minority groups and highlight their positive role in society.
