We provide a wide range of people and organisations with means to improve human rights and promote social justice. We focus on the empowerment of international human rights defenders at risk and on the initiatives in the Netherlands working for local solidarity with refugees. With our work, we also wish to raise awareness and to inspire citizens to stand up against injustice and human rights violations. Our initiatives change as they adapt to new contexts, but our values and methods remain the same.
