Realizing human rights and ending poverty in Zimbabwe
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.
Read on to learn more about how our grantees in Zimbabwe are working to improve our world, or donate to help support their work.
