Open Briefing has published its impact report for 2019. We estimate that we directly strengthened the safety and resilience of 430 human rights defenders and other civic actors across the world during 2019 – a 23% increase on 2018. Beneficiaries that Open Briefing supported during 2019 reported an average 82% increase in confidence in their organisation’s security and/or wellbeing due to our work with them.
The nature of our work protecting human rights defenders and humanitarians means that we operate largely behind the scenes. Nonetheless, our new annual report attempts to outline the considerable impact that Open Briefing is having around the world; an impact way beyond what our size and budget would suggest possible. The report also sets out our plans for the next 12 months.
