Alternatives strength has always been in our partnerships with local and international grassroots movements struggling for social change.
Thanks to you, we have been able to intervene in key areas targeting human rights, human dignity and social justice as well as environmental protection and the protection of the common good.
With your support in 2018 we have been able to:
- Support women journalists, media activists and human rights defenders in the Middle East and North Africa who have been targeted by violence and political repression
- Help sustain the Mother and Child Nutritional Recovery Center in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti, where mothers and children can access nutrition and skills for economic recovery
- Work in solidarity with communities who are facing the direct impacts of climate change and extractivism, such as those in Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and El Salvador, helping them to effectively participate in the political process in their countries
Your donations to our ongoing solidarity work show that you value building new solutions from the grassroots up. Only together can we continue to build political strength through the maintenance of horizontal partnerships with those people who are directly affected by issues such as climate change, political repression, gendered violence and food insecurity.
Your donation today will help to support our new projects, among them:
- A professional training program for women in the informal sector in Honduras
- Tangible support for a number of rights-based feminist women’s groups in Iraq
- The creation of an observatory on violence and human rights violations against female journalists in MENA
- The deployment of a multi-country online program promoting human rights
Our relationships define Alternatives and we will continue to build productive and fruitful relationships with grassroots movements around the world who share a common vision.
Your donation will ensure that our work with movements in the North and South can continue to sustain real alternatives for positive social change in 2019.
