Who are we?
We are Amos Trust, a small human rights organisation dedicated to challenging injustice, building hope and creating positive change. Our projects centre around promoting the rights of marginalised groups, encompassing issues related to girls and young women, advocating for Palestinian rights, and addressing climate justice concerns in rural communities in Nicaragua.

We collaborate with grassroots partners globally, leveraging local expertise to address global issues. Our work is grounded in the belief that another world, where justice prevails and every voice is heard, is possible.

Climate & Gender Fellowship 2024
Climate change disproportionately impacts women, who make up 80% of the most affected population. Despite their heightened vulnerability to climate change, women are often excluded from decision-making in climate governance, perpetuating this pattern of vulnerability.

In this context, Amos Trust has been engaging with global female climate activists since 2019, leading to the initiation of the inaugural 2023 Climate Fellowship, which involved six young women from the Global South. Lessons learned from this pilot have informed the refinement of the Climate & Gender Fellowship for 2024-2026, with a focus on reducing vulnerability and enhancing women’s involvement in climate action in Mexico and Central America.

Who are we looking to participate?

  • This opportunity has been tailored for a maximum of 12 young women climate activists in Mexico and Central America (Guatemala, Belize, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama).

  • Participants should be within the age range of 18 to 35 years old.

  • Ideal candidates should have a desire to implement a project within a maximum time frame of 6 months aimed at increasing participation and reducing the vulnerability of women to climate change from a gender perspective.

  • Candidates should express an interest in receiving training on various topics to enhance their capacity-building as climate activists, and they should also be willing to share their expertise with fellow participants.

  • Recognising that gender is an intersectional issue, we actively encourage applications from minorities, including members of the LGBTIQ community, people of colour, individuals with disabilities, and members of indigenous communities.

Climate change is a justice issue

Those who have the least political and economic power, and the least responsibility for the changing climate, are affected the most.


We partner with CEPAD in Nicaragua to empower seven communities in Teustepe with the skills, knowledge and community resilience required to address their own problems.

Once In A Lifetime

A short social-friendly snippet from Amos Trust’s Once In A Lifetime climate justice summit in Cambridge in September 2019 when we were joined by climate activists, thinkers and doers.


We support rural communities in Nicaragua through our partner CEPAD but we can’t do it without your help. Every penny goes to supporting those most affected by climate change.
