KHRP on the Brink of Reaching its GlobalGiving Target
KHRP is pleased to announce it has almost accomplished its GlobalGiving target. It only needs another 19 people to make a minimum donation of £5 each to win a permanent place in the Global Giving Network. This will be a crucial step in helping to give women living in the Kurdish regions of Turkey the tools they need to change their lives.
At the start of November, KHRP launched a fundraising initiative in support of its Women’s Access to Justice Project. The project was posted on GlobalGiving.co.uk’s website as part of the GlobalGiving November 2009 Project Challenge.

Thanks to generous support, KHRP has already successfully raised £914 from 31 unique donors and is delighted to be first place on the Project Challenge Leader Board. However, KHRP urgently needs 19 more donors to secure its permanent place on the GlobalGiving Network. To find out more and to make a donation, please visit GlobalGiving.co.uk/4010.
In addition, the two projects that raise the most money through the Challenge will receive an extra donation from GlobalGiving towards their work: £1,000 for the first place winner and £500 for the second place winner. An additional prize of £500 will be awarded to the project that gets the most donors so every project has a chance to win even if you give a small donation.
‘KHRP’s project seeks to raise awareness on women’s rights in Turkey where breaches to women’s rights are common and where limited access to justice is particularly acute in the Kurdish regions’, said KHRP Chief Executive, Kerim Yildiz. ‘By winning a permanent place on the GlobalGiving marketplace, KHRP can be connected to donors passionate about human rights worldwide, helping to give this and other KHRP projects crucial exposure to supporters old and new.’
