Welcome to AJWS—a community inspired by Jewish values of justice and a universal commitment to human rights. Together we’re working to build a more just and equitable world for all.

What We Do

We strive to end poverty and promote human rights in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean by doing three key things: We fund social change organizations; we accompany them by building their capacity and bringing them together to collaborate and strengthen social movements; and we advocate on Capitol Hill and Global forums for laws and policies that promote human rights for all.

Where We Work
