HerRights projects are aligned to three action items:

  1. We review, select and fund promising, high-impact projects presented by partner or sister organizations

  2. Where gaps exist, we pilot our own programs

  3. Our Grievance Cell Based Model (GCBM) projects offer help to victims and organizations who reach out to us with their stories, communicating an urgent need for support. GCBM projects are designed to offer anonymity to protect the victims and individuals involved.

Gender Rights Crisis in Afghanistan
Since the exit of the United States from Afghanistan, women and LGBTQ communities have been abruptly placed in high risk situations. Most are facing a loss of freedom and access to work; many are in danger of losing their lives. As an immediate intervention, HerRights partnered with Afghan American activist, Nemat Sadat (Roshaniya, Behesht Collective) to help get high risk individuals out of the country. Roshaniya and Behesht continue to assist rescued LGBTQ individuals and those in distress by raising funds, organizing escape flights and asylum, and driving awareness on attacks and criminal persecution in Afghanistan against women and LGBTQ individuals. Between August and early September 2021, 253 individuals were assisted with evacuation and asylum-seeking in various countries including Pakistan, the UK and Uganda.
