Why donate to MRG?

batwa womanMRG works with the most marginalized minority and indigenous communities. These are the communities who are always at the back of the queue when it comes to public services and development opportunities – such as health, education or work. Racism, discrimination and exclusion are everyday facts for them, and many are no strangers to violence.

These are communities like the Batwa in East Africa who are often not permitted to eat or sit with other communities or use wells at the same time; the Dominicans of Haitian descent who recently had their citizenship status revoked and are now in stateless legal limbo; and Dalits in India the majority of whom continue to survive under sub-human, degrading conditions.

MRG is nearly 60 years old, making us one of the oldest human rights organizations in the world. Over that time we have stood by our partners, proving that we are in it for the long haul and achieve significant milestones – such as when we recently litigated the first successful case against a slave-owner in Mauritania.

We are determined that these communities must not be forgotten or oppressed. With your support we can continue this important work.  Thank you.
