About Nonprofit

We protect vulnerable communities, children, refugees and those in conflict-stricken areas to improve their quality of life and seek justice. We investigate human rights abuses in 100 countries and expose the abuse stories to generate international pressure on governments, corporations and the United Nations to change policies and laws. Our organisation ensures its independence by refusing government funding and partnering with various organisations around the world to protect activists and encourage accountability. We have investigated massacres, genocides, government media take-overs, arbitrary arrests and political oppressions.
