Beneficiaries

Since its launch earlier this year the Resilience Fund has begun supporting 21 individuals and NGOs in 5 continents. They are working in diverse situations and in different ways, all building community resilience to organized crime.

Details on all the projects we are supporting will appear on this page soon.

The priority windows being supported are:

Counter Crime Activists

Activists speak out against the injustices perpetrated by organized crime, and build peace by, for example, mediating gang conflict, often at great personal risk.

Resilience Groups

Youth, women’s and religious organizations, and NGOs that target those made vulnerable by organized crime often provide victims with innovative forms of protection and respite from abuse in the absence of an effective state response.

Journalism

Media exposés of criminal activity have often become catalysts for wider responses against organized crime.
