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.
£14 could fund transport costs for a trained Land Rights Defender from Uganda to respond quickly and in person to support a community member facing eviction or a threat of arrest or harassment due to defending her or his rights to land
£60 could enable one minority activist in Egypt to complete a 12-week online course with regular support from a tutor to build skills and knowledge to represent their community and defend their rights
£565 could fund a minority activist from Turkey to travel to the UN in Geneva (COVID-19 permitting) and speak directly to UN Ambassadors about how minority communities are struggling to achieve rights fulfilment and equality and what can be done to secure changes
£3 monthly (£36) could pay for childcare support during our Land Rights training for activists in Kenya, so that more women can attend, ensuring gender balance and supported activism in our events but more importantly the inclusion of gender specific questions into conversations and actions that develop as a result of the trainings
£44 monthly (£528) could fund travel and accommodation for 6 Roma paralegal mediators from remote areas in Serbia to attend our training course, where they will learn skills to help identify discrimination and to use existing legal ways to challenge it and improve access to the justice system for Roma people
£70 monthly (£840) could allow our Legal Team to identify and support 3 victims of rights abuses or discrimination in India (providing legal, logistical and fact-finding support to mount legal challenges) and not allow discrimination to pass unchecked

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.
