For every £1 we receive, we spend 93p on our activities to benefit marginalised minorities and indigenous peoples, 5p to raise the next £1 and 2p on governance and other costs.
£15 enables updates to the MRG Directory with an accurate report detailing minority rights abuses which is used by many decision-makers, civil society organisations, journalists, academics and other NGOs.
£45 allows an activist defending minority rights to complete a two-week online course on human rights & advocacy, supported by a tutor to help apply the learning to their challenges.
£150 funds a fact finding mission to a minority community to survey and document violent attacks, discrimination, exclusion, poverty and hate speech the community is facing.
£500 investigates a new legal case and sets up the claimant with a pro bono lawyer.
£5 trains and support youths to participate in indigenous and minority-driven theatre and story telling i.e. working with Pakistan schools to develop inter-community/inter-faith initiatives (annual contribution would be £60)
£20 sponsors the research and publication of our thematic Annual Reports (2019 is Climate Change with an expected readership of 27,000) (annual contribution would be £240)
£50 sponsors minorities excluded from a basic education to enrol on a literacy course i.e. children coming out of slavery in Mauritania (annual contribution would be £600)
£75 funds an activist to travel from a remote region to United Nations in Geneva to tell their story and lobby decision maker (annual contribution would be £900)
Why donate to MRG?
MRG has championed the rights of minorities for 50 years. We have achieved significant victories at every level from supporting remote community-led organisations, all the way to the UN. At various times in our history, we have struggled to meet our core costs and keep afloat. These occasions often correspond to moments in history when the appetite for combating structural discrimination is low, and when identity politics are used to raise fears.
With your support we can continue this important work. All major Debit Cards / Credit Cards are accepted.
If you would like to donate via cheque, please make payable to Minority Rights Group and we will happily return a receipt to your email or postal address.
