Realizing human rights and ending poverty in Sri Lanka
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 Sri Lanka, AJWS supports communities that have been displaced due to conflict and natural disasters, enabling them to rebuild their lives and prepare themselves for the future. AJWS is also supporting rural communities to influence decision making on the use of natural resources.
