Our 10th Anniversary year - 2021 - has been both challenging and rewarding. We are proud to report that as of December 2021, Donor Direct Action has re-granted over $5 million dollars to our partners and grantees! This is a significant milestone and, thanks to you – our front line donors – we have been able to continue supporting our dedicated front line activists. We are particularly glad to have been able to get some desperately needed funds into Afghanistan to support the shelter we partner with in Kabul, which continues its efforts to save lives under the most trying circumstances.
On Human Rights Day we celebrated our anniversary with an online dialogue between founding board members Gloria Steinem and Lynn Nottage, followed by a broadcast of our 10th-anniversary event featuring Yvonne Chaka-Chaka, Christine Lahti, Denis Mukwege, Meryl Streep, and many of our front line partners from around the world. In case you missed this event, we are sending you this special link and password (HumanRightsDay2021), which you can use to watch the show through the end of the year.
Without your help, none of this would have been possible and we hope you know just how critical your support is to the fight in ending all forms of violence and discrimination against women all around the world. We want to share this anniversary message of thanks from our partners with you - thank you from all of us at Donor Direct Action and best wishes for the holidays!
