Emergency & Small grants funding Campaign
Give to the Global Grassroots Activists in our Network
Feeling frustrated, angry, and hopeless with so much bad news in the world today?
Don’t despair. Make an immediate difference giving today to support courageous grassroots activists and peacebuilders working in high-risk regions around the world for peace, justice, and dignity. They are facing major challenges exacerbated by the COVID 19 pandemic but are continuing to achieve important wins for change in communities around the world.
- pushing back against election violence in Kenya;
- protecting human rights defenders struggling for democracy and rights in Western Sahara, Palestine and Uganda;
- building alliances to change policies on women’s rights and violence against women in Pakistan, India and Guatemala; and
- working for environmental and indigenous rights and saving river systems in Nepal, Brazil, Southeast Asia, and India, among many other issues.
Your donation to Solidarity 2020 and Beyond’s Funding Campaign for Global Grassroots Activists will go directly to these amazing people in the field struggling for a better world. Your donation will go to build our emergency and small grants pool which go 100% to local communities with no overhead. The emergency grants fund critical needs like security and relocation, micro-enterprise and livelihoods, and healthcare and psycho-social programs to keep activists and their families healthy enabling them to continue their critical work. Our small grants fund advocacy campaigns and activities such as an International Peace Day for youth and prevention of election violence community dialogue in Kenya; nonviolent action training workshops to develop networks and action plans in Southeast Asia and Palestine; and Social Justice clubs in Uganda.
All activities and funds are applied for and distributed to trusted, experienced, and savvy activist leaders, members of our Global Grassroots Activists Network, involved in locally led initiatives. Results and lessons learned are shared with others doing similar work in our network and beyond through reports, social media communication, webinars and a soon to be launched blog. We stress sustainability and continue support over many years. There is no one-off project.
The issues our GGAN members are working on include climate crisis and environmental rights, racial justice, women’s rights and gender justice, indigenous rights, self-determination and freedom, and anti-corruption campaigns and movements in Africa, Asia, Middle East, Latin America—areas where resources are limited and human rights abuses a major challenge.
