The Advocacy Project

To do this, we partner with community-based advocates who represent these communities and share their problems. Our support for partners is innovative and effective.

Use Soap to Empower 60 Rape Survivors in Mali
 
This project will help 60 survivors of the brutal conflict in northern Mali to recover by producing and selling soap. Our Malian partner, Sini Sanuman (Healthy Tomorrow) in Bamako will purchase the ingredients for 5,000 bars of high-quality shea butter soap. The women will then learn how to make and sell the soap at Sini Sanuman's center in Bamako. This will bolster their confidence and earn them a living. It will also show Malians how women can contribute to peace in their war-torn country. project reportread updates from the field

Help 40 graduates to serve as Fellows for Peace
 
The Advocacy Project (AP) is seeking funds to send 40 graduates to volunteer as Peace Fellows for social justice in 15 countries. Since 2003, we have recruited 274 graduates like Chantal, pictured here in Nepal, to help community-based advocates battle discrimination.

In the process they will learn skills, grow in confidence, earn academic credit and prepare for a career in human rights. project reportread updates from the field
