Human Rights Watch
Our Grantees

Human Rights Watch (HRW) is a human rights organization renowned for fact-finding, impartial reporting and effective use of media and targeted advocacy, often in partnership with local human rights groups. Each year, the nonprofit, non-governmental organization publishes more than 100 reports and briefings on human rights conditions in some 90 countries, documents that generate extensive press in local and international media. The leverage such coverage brings facilitates access to government officials, the United Nations, regional groups such as the African Union and the European Union, financial institutions and corporations—access the organization uses to press for policy changes that promote human rights and justice around the world.
