Who is SiKanda?
SiKanda - SOLIDARIDAD INTERNACIONAL KANDA A.C.- is an independent, nongovernmental, nonprofit and non-denominational organization founded in 2009 in Oaxaca, Mexico.
"Kanda" means “Movement” in Mixtec, an indigenous language spoken in Mexico.
SiKanda, as its word of origin suggests, seeks to create an International Movement of Solidarity and Cooperation. SiKanda is involved in the design and implementation of programs that fight poverty and promote human and social rights.
SiKanda aspires to create a world in which different sectors of society, both national and international, cooperate to improve the quality of life of disadvantaged peoples through a process of mutual learning, responsibility, and justice while respecting the rights of all people to make their own decisions with regard to their lifestyles.
SiKanda seeks to facilitate and manage participatory processes of balanced and sustainable development in order to improve the quality of life in Mexico and other countries. Our conviction is that awareness and collaboration across distinct sectors of society, both national and international, can bring about a more just and equal world.
