Why Support Global Witness?

We focus on issues which are central to some of the major global challenges we face today.

For 25 years, Global Witness has worked to expose the links between corruption, natural resources and conflict. Through rigorous investigative research we shine a light on the worst environmental and human rights abuses to make sure that those responsible are held accountable for their actions. 

Our experience and well-developed networks mean we have the ability to undertake in-depth investigations to expose corruption and develop highly targeted advocacy and campaigns.

To do this, we rely on our supporters’ generosity. Your donations will help us to drive impact by:

  • Undertaking investigations, including research trips and in depth data analysis.
  • Hiring expert staff in diverse fields such as data science and law enforcement.
  • Utilising innovative technology to aid our investigations such as drones, GPS tracking, and satellite imagery.
  • Build successful long term change with creative advocacy strategies.

If you have any questions about making a donation, or would like to find out more about our campaigns, please contact the Development Team at [email protected]
