Where We Work
From India to Haiti, Kenya to Cambodia, AJWS supports extraordinary leaders for social justice who are working to build a better world—locally, nationally and globally.
AJWS supports activists on the frontlines of social change in five countries in Africa. From mobilizing opposition to anti-LGBTQI+ legislation in Uganda to helping Kenyan communities defend their access to clean water, AJWS grantees work tirelessly to build just societies.
AJWS works in seven countries in Asia to promote human rights and end poverty. From ending the practice of child marriage in India to protecting the rights of migrant workers on the border of Burma and Thailand, we support people who are on the frontlines of social change.
Latin America & The Caribbean
AJWS works to promote human rights and end poverty in six countries in Latin America and the Caribbean. From helping earthquake survivors in Haiti rebuild their lives to protecting the land of indigenous communities in Mexico, we support people who are on the frontlines of social change.
Here in the U.S., AJWS advocates for progressive foreign policy that supports equitable, just societies that respect the human rights of all people around the globe.
