The Endowment for Global Hindu Rights


The issues that Hindus face around the world are largely overlooked by most of the well-known human rights agencies. Hindus need to join together globally to provide for an institution that highlights human rights violations face by Hindus and that advocates for change. The purpose of this fund is to support the Hindu American Foundation's Hindu human right efforts. The Hindu American Foundation (HAF) is an advocacy group providing a progressive voice for over two million Hindu Americans. The Foundation interacts with and educates leaders in public policy, academia, media and the public at large about Hinduism and global issues concerning Hindus such as human rights. This endowment provides funds for the following Hindu human rights activities by HAF: * Attending international human rights conferences * Developing, publishing, printing and marketing of human rights reports including, but not limited to, reports specific to Harijans/Dalit/"untouchables", women, and Hindus as minorities * Giving awards and/or grants to individuals working globally for Hindu human rights * Advocating for and attending human rights briefings and hearings in Congress * Any additional project that actively touches on Hindu human rights.
