The Freedom Challenge is a great way to get more people to care about important human rights issues. It is also a fantastic opportunity to help raise funds to help us continue protecting human rights all around the world.

Amnesty International does not accept any government funding. This means we rely totally on the support of people just like you to be able to keep fighting the bad guys. We work to bring those responsible for abusing human rights to justice, and work to prevent any more abuses from happening.

The money you raise will go towards:

  • Funding our research into human rights issues.
  • Providing accurate information and reports to world leaders so that they have all the right facts when it comes to making important decisions that have an effect on people’s rights.
  • Keeping the media, the public and supporters like you up to date on what’s happening and what you can do.
  • Making sure activists and supporters like you have the resources you need to keep up your campaigning.
