The American Jewish World Service Aids Those Who Face Injustice and Poverty Through Jewish Standards

Cool Story - The American Jewish World Service Aids Those Who Face Injustice and Poverty Through Jewish Standards

 

 

The American Jewish World Service was started in 1985 by two American Jews named Larry Phillips and Larry Simon. This organization was created with the goal of helping others in need all around the world. AJWS works mainly to promote basic human rights for everyone. This is done through the organization's advocacy and grantmaking. They also advocate and provide grants towards issues such as sexual well-being and disaster relief. The global locations AJWS helps the most are Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean. The organization provides money to other organizations with the same objectives as them. 502 grassroots organizations in 18 countries have been supported by AJWS in 2021 alone! AJWS has grown tremendously since its inception, investing over $35 million a year towards its goals. 

 

AJWS has been around for years, and so naturally they’ve had so many different accomplishments. The first major achievement from the organization was their action in helping with a volcano disaster in Armaro, Colombia in 1986. In 1988, AJWS created new technology and strategies for safer grain storage. These methods were later implemented by the UN World Food Program. After moving from Boston to New York City, AJWS introduced agricultural training programs in Mexico, Honduras and Haiti. In the summer of 1995, a group of Jewish volunteers helped to build a new water system in Honduras. AJWS later created the Volunteer Summer program, so others could offer their time in the summer to those who need it. In 1999, AJWS assisted an African-based organization named Tostan in banning the practice of female genital cutting. AJWS helped to provide medicine and other supplies in Mozambique after the nation experienced a flood. In 2003, AJWS started peer exchange programs to decide the best way to deal with an epidemic of HIV.

 

AJWS is an organization that cares deeply about people being treated fairly and being respected. As part of their work, they assist others who are fighting for those who are being mistreated and oppressed. People are supposed to have basic human rights, but some global leaders don’t care about that at all. They are evil human beings who purposely deny their citizens human rights and threaten them if they dare to speak up. That’s where AJWS comes in. They provide aid and funds to human rights organizations to help them with their mission. These other organizations educate people about their rights and fight back against corruption. AJWS’ grantees advocate for a fair democracy that’s not run by corrupt leaders. AJWS believes everyone around the world should have the right to communicate freely, organize change, and live without fear of persecution.   

 

Everyone, regardless of their gender or sexuality, should be free to be themselves, be educated, and feel safe. However, that’s not always the case. One in three women will be abused or attacked during their life. Those in the LGBTQI+ community face persecution in many countries just because of their sexuality. 12 million girls are forced into marriage before they become adults. AJWS is looking to put an end to this violence and mistreatment. They back up organizations and advocates for the fight to stop these issues. AJWS helps those who fight tirelessly against injustice and violence. They also work together with locals to help spread changes in their communities. AJWS wants all individuals to have the same options, make their own choices, not feel afraid of violence, and obtain the healthcare they need without fear of prejudice. 

 

If you believe in social justice and human rights, AJWS is a great charity for you to support. If you wish to donate to this cause, click here: https://act.ajws.org/secure/donate?_ga=2.157759994.1318258924.1649337802-1151102525.1649337802.
