Our mission and values


We exist because vibrant, diverse, and robust civil societies are essential to achieving peace, human rights, and environmental justice.


We believe in a world in which rights and justice are universally possible.


We empower people and communities to agitate and advocate without fear of attacks and reprisals.


Act global. We stand with civic actors working on progressive issues in any country.

Deliver impact. We understand risk, build resilience, and create lasting change.

Stand together. We build long-term partnerships as a trusted ally.

Be authentic. We live our values and speak our truth.

Embody openness. We are transparent, compassionate, and generous with our time and expertise.

Organisational culture

We are a clan. We focus on collaboration and teamwork in the pursuit of common goals. We value mentoring and open lines of communication over control and hierarchy. We are a close-knit team and support each other in our professional and personal lives.
