As COVID-19 spreads across the globe, daily life has come to a standstill for millions—but for local leaders and grassroots organizers, their work is just beginning.
From Latin America to Sub-Saharan Africa, Fund-backed activists and organizations are working tirelessly to protect the health, safety, and rights of their communities. Below, you can read their inspiring stories #fromthefrontlines of the pandemic in the Global South.
The Fund was built for a moment like this. Our model of flexible funding and strategic assistance enables our partners to adapt their work, reallocate resources, and provide the support their communities need.
Help us ensure frontline activists and community leaders have the resources necessary to safeguard fundamental human rights and defend vulnerable or marginalized populations. With your support, we will weather this storm—together.
