Aline Kunz


Aline has been an intern at Incomindios since January 2024. She completed her Bachelor's degree in Social Sciences and Sustainable Development at the University of Bern. Before starting her Master's in Global Studies at the University of Lucerne, she would like to gain professional experience in a human rights organization at Incomindios.

Through her voluntary work at a school for socially disadvantaged children in Huancayo, Peru, and her travels through South America, she has already been able to gain  first insights into indigenous cultures and is looking forward to delving deeper into the topic.

Our board 

Anna Cristina Peterson

Department of Communication and Fundraising, Co-president

Anna Cristina Peterson holds a Master's degree in Latin American Studies from the University of Bern. Her interest in Indigenous communities and other minority groups developed during her childhood growing up in a village outside Bogota, Colombia, where she lived with various minority groups. After completing her Master's degree, she unexpectedly stumbled upon the profession of fundraiser, which she hopes to further develop and expand her knowledge.

After a 6-month internship, Barbara Stulz was elected to the board of Incomindios in 2018 and is now responsible for the "Rights" and "Resources" departments. Barbara has a bachelor's degree in ethnology and a master's degree in human rights & politics. She is particularly interested in the issues of human rights, natural resources and extractivism with a focus on Latin America – issues that often also have a strong impact on Indigenous communities. Barbara lived in La Paz (Bolivia) for 6 months and in Mexico for 2 years, where she worked in civil society organizations in the field of human rights. At the moment Barbara is back in Bolivia and works for the Better Gold Initiative (BGI), a Swiss project that promotes sustainable value chains of gold from Bolivia, Peru and Colombia to Switzerland.
