Human Rights Watch: http://www.hrw.org
An organization dedicated to defending the basic human rights of people worldwide thru humanitarian law. They do not accept government funds or support from any one private fund that could compromise objectivity, instead maintaining their independence and neutrality. Their only goal is improvement in the ethical treatment of human beings and the exposure of human rights violations. They investigate abuses and release the facts widely in order to inform, incite change and pressure those in power to secure justice and improve the rights of those in need.
WildAid’s mission is to end the illegal wildlife trade that is drastically reducing many wildlife populations around the world. Every year, it’s estimated that 10 billion dollars in illegally poached animal goods such as ivory and pelts are traded, something the organization hopes to stop via reducing the demand and increasing public awareness. They also provide comprehensive marine protection. WildAid’s message is simple: when the buying stops, the killing can too.
American Foundation for Suicide Prevention: http://www.afsp.org
The AFSP funds research, creates educational programs, advocates for public policy changes and supports the survivors of suicide loss. Working to help those in need as well as the survivors of those already gone, they hope to raise awareness, offer treatment programs and prevent further losses.
City of Joy: http://drc.vday.org/splash/
A joint project of Foundation Panzi (DRC) and V-day, a global activist movement to end violence against women and girls including rape, battery, incest, female genital mutilation (FGM), and sex slavery, the City of Joy was created in the Democratic Republic of Congo in Bukavu to help the female sufferers of violence there. Conceived, owned, and run by local Congolese, the City of Joy has flourished since it first opened its doors in June 2011, healing women from their past trauma through medical attention, therapy and the teaching of life skills while providing them with the essential ingredients needed to move forward – love and community. Serving 90 survivors of gender violence aged 18 to 30 at a time, in six years the City of Joy will graduate over 1,000 future female leaders to make active change in the surrounding communities moving forward.

They work to prevent sex trafficking, sexual violence, police brutality, property grabbing and citizens rights abuses by rescuing victims, bringing the criminals to justice, restoring survivors to strength, and finally, helping local law enforcement learn how to build a safer future that lasts. More than just rescuing individuals however, they’re also focused on helping prevent violence BEFORE it starts.
