Focus area: Promote and protect the rights of marginalized populations through capacity building
Beneficiaries: Global Rights is an international human rights capacity-building non-governmental organization (NGO) that works side by side with local activists in Africa, Asia, and Latin America to promote and protect the rights of marginalized populations. Through broad-based technical assistance and training, they strengthen partners to document and expose human rights abuses, conduct community outreach and mobilization, advocate for legal and policy reform, and provide legal and programming.
At the core of their programming is a deep commitment to increase access to justice for poor and marginalized groups, promote women’s rights and gender equality, and advance ethnic and racial equality. In addition to this, they have two special initiatives—lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex rights and natural resources and human rights—that allow them to explore new program areas while targeting populations that fit within their core legal services.
Countries: Africa, Asia and Latin America e.g, Afghanistan, Algeria, Brazil, Burundi, Colombia, Congo, Morocco, Nigeria, Peru, Sierra Leone, Uganda
Financing: Global Rights is governed by a seventeen-member board of directors comprising senior lawyers, journalists, and academics and operated by a 70-member staff, two-thirds of whom work outside the United States
