How are we making a difference?
Justice Desk Africa (JDA) has impacted the lives of over 2 million people since 2013
This includes the training and equipping of over 600 000 people to become everyday activists who are actively leading their own change.
During this time, JDA has released 50+ advocacy videos and educational materials that have further educated people across Africa and the rest of the world on their fundamental human rights.
These projects continue to positively impact the lives of survivors of rape and gender-based violence, young boys at risk of joining gangs and without positive male role models, as well as elderly, disabled, and sickly people from vulnerable, under-served communities.
With the iNtsika yeThemba Project, over 800 young boys without father figures have been
mentored by positive male
role models and trained to be human rights champions.
Since 2013, over 3000 young girls who are survivors of rape and gender-based violence have received mental health support, human rights training and
self-defense classes through
the Mbokodo Project.
Through the Umoya Project, over 1500 elderly, sick, disabled and abandoned people have received support and direct services from the JDA team and volunteers.
JDA’s Youth Ambassadors Project is currently running in 20+ schools and has 400+ Youth Ambassadors, young people who we have mentored to become incredible defenders of human rights across Africa.
Our YA’s alongside 220+ Advocacy Teachers further empower and equip their schools and communities with human rights education through guided campaigns, standing up for the rights of other children.
JDA has had over 400 active volunteers and interns from across the globe, who regularly volunteer in our various life-changing projects.
