Where We Work
Advancing the Health and Rights of Women, Girls and LGBT People
We support women, girls and LGBT people so that they can stop violence and discrimination, gain control over their lives and bodies, and live in health, safety and dignity.
Promoting Recovery from Conflict and Oppression
We aid communities in their work to recover from conflict, fight oppression, speak out against injustice and create vibrant, peaceful societies that respect the rights of all citizens.
Defending Access to Food, Land and Livelihoods
We empower communities to protest exploitative development conducted without their consent and to protect the land, water and natural resources that they depend on for survival.
Aiding Communities After Disasters
From earthquakes to tsunamis to genocides, AJWS provides immediate humanitarian relief and stays the course with long-term support, focusing on building more just and equitable societies from the ground up.
