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 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.
In the United States, AJWS advocates for U.S. policies that provide international aid to and support the human rights of communities we serve around the world — from pushing to strike down the discriminatory ‘Global Gag Rule’ that limits funding for women’s healthcare to advocating for legislation that ensures the safety and security of the persecuted Rohingya people of Burma.
