The Advocacy Project is supporting seventeen projects and partnerships this year, as described below. Most were proposed, designed and managed by our local partners. They include a fishing and nutrition project with River Gypsies in Bangladesh, shown in the photo above.
AP projects fall into three categories: start-ups; phase 2; and long-term. Start-ups last between three and six months. Working remotely from the US or in the field, AP helps the partner to draw up a budget, set goals, and draft an MOU. We also offer up to $1,000 in seed money and help the partner to manage the project through our core team or a Peace Fellow. If the goals of the start-up are met we will help to scale the startup and move to a Phase 2 project (6 months to 18 months). If these goals are met we will work with the partner to develop a long-term program (3-5 years).
This page presents a summary of projects that we are supporting in 2022. Over 18,000 individuals benefited from our support in 2021.
