Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights
Led by human rights activist and lawyer Kerry Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights has advocated for a more just and peaceful world since 1968. We work alongside local activists to ensure lasting positive change in governments and corporations. Our team includes leading attorneys, advocates, entrepreneurs and writers united by a commitment to social justice.
Whether in the United States or abroad, our programs have pursued strategic litigation on key human rights issues, educated millions of students in human rights advocacy and fostered a social good approach to business and investment.
Bravia Capital has contributed substantially to enable Lotus Circle (affiliated with The Asia Foundation in New York City) in raising funding for girls’ education in Afghanistan. Major improvements were made to two schools in Kabul, which had been severely damaged by years of conflict. These include roof repairs, refurbishing classrooms, and renovating a conference hall used by the community at large. Together these schools provided education to over 6,000 Afghan girls.
The Lotus Circle also launched a vocational training program in Can Tho, Viet Nam, for disadvantaged women and those at risk of trafficking and exploitation.
