HUMAN RIGHTS ACTIVISM AND MONITORING

Supporting human rights activists based on the needs on the ground, particularly in repressive environments where other donors have difficulty operating, constitutes a major part of the EED portfolio.

Overview of EED support

EED works to ensure that the voices of campaigners, community activists, lawyers, journalists and other human rights defenders are heard and not marginalised. Numerous initiatives fostering human rights advocacy, education and awareness, research and monitoring have benefited from EED’s coaching and grants.
