Global Friends in Action
Global Friends in Action envisions a world where all citizens have hope, dignity and the tools to advance the greater protection of their rights.
Our mission is to strengthen opportunities for all people to meet their full potential and to participate in decisions that help them realize their human rights.
We are a collective of global non-profit professionals who have a common passion for working alongside local communities to combat injustice and amplify voices at the margins.
We are working with communities globally to build programs that strengthen individuals' understanding of their rights and how to claim them.
Programs to date have centered on health and human rights in Zambia /our-history-7, digital security and privacy, poverty and human rights, as well as entrepreneurs' rights in Asia.
