KHRP Secures its Place on GlobalGiving Website

Thanks to the kind hearted support of its friends and supporters, KHRP is delighted to announce that it has raised £2,386 from 81 donors during last month’s GlobalGiving Project Challenge.  A further €5,000 has also been pledged.

Coming in third place by only £25, KHRP missed the chance to win an extra £500 award from GlobalGiving.  However, it secured its principle goal of securing a permanent place on the website which allows it global exposure to a wider supporter base. 


All of the funds raised will be used to support KHRP’s legal casework, capacity-building training, the observation of domestic trials, fact-finding missions and research and public awareness. Together, these seek to educate local men and women, and those advocating on their behalf, about the international standards Turkey must comply with regarding women’s rights, and about the legal remedies that can be used to better protect them.

Although the one-month challenge ended yesterday, the project of course continues, so it is still not too late to visit to pledge your support.  

‘On behalf of KHRP I would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to each and every one of you that has supported us during the past few weeks’, said KHRP Chief Executive, Kerim Yildiz.  ‘We never cease to be amazed by the generosity of KHRP’s supporters and friends and we have all been staggered by the levels of support that our Access to Justice Project has attracted in such a short space of time.  Every contribution goes a long way in helping the advancement of women’s rights not only in Turkey or across the Kurdish regions, but internationally.’

In addition to this project, you can also continue to support all areas of KHRP’s work in the usual way by making online donations through our website, making cheques/ postal orders payable to the Kurdish Human Rights Project, or by calling KHRP’s Development Department on +44 207 405 3835 to donate by telephone.
