How do we move human rights forward?

The work, the funds, the impact

The Fund for Global Human Rights is moving human rights forward by providing resources and tools to on-the-ground activists who have real potential to generate positive change. Since our founding in 2003, we have awarded over $60 million to more than 400 human rights groups.

Our grants and technical assistance are focused on crucial and difficult work that otherwise might falter for lack of resources, bring financial stability to human rights groups, and help human rights defenders increase their visibility and impact. The Fund supports a wide range of human rights issues, such as defending indigenous land rights in Guatemala, promoting women’s rights in Morocco, pressing for accountability for war crimes in West Africa, and ending the practice of bonded labor (a form of slavery) in India.
