More than 300 civil society organizations assisted. More than 4,000 activists trained.
More than 3 billion people live in countries where freedom of expression, online communication and civic activism are closed or restricted. The people and organizations who advocate for an open and inclusive society in those countries are often risking their personal safety.
We work in some of the most challenging environments to provide demand-driven, customized support to civil society organizations, human rights activists and independent media to secure their digital presence. By partnering with technology experts worldwide, Counterpart has integrated advanced technical and country-specific knowledge into our global digital security work.
