Realizing human rights and ending poverty in Democratic Republic of Congo
Inspired by the Jewish commitment to justice, we support organizations working to overcome poverty and oppression. Our small, grassroots grantees are rooted in communities, where they empower local people to identify their most critical concerns and take action to address injustice. We also support groups that organize broader movements for social change, influencing governments and policymakers to respect and promote human rights.
In the Democratic Republic of Congo, AJWS supports the provision of emergency aid and trauma relief to displaced communities, human rights defenders. We also promote post-conflict reconciliation and reconstruction by ensuring the participation of women and youth in the transition from conflict to peace.
