Part of HURIDOCS’ strategy is to partner with human rights groups and create solutions for their specific documentation and information management needs. We often receive payment to cover these services, which then fund our operations and activities.

To all of our partners who have given us the gift of trust and support, thank you!

Individual donors

People from all walks of life have given to HURIDOCS, and we are deeply appreciative of their support. These individual donations fund our continued operations and activities.
