Mission Statement

AJWS is an independent not-for-profit organization founded in 1985 to help alleviate poverty, hunger and disease among the people of the world regardless of race, religion or nationality. It breathes life into Judaism's imperative to pursue justice and helps American Jews act upon a deeply felt obligation to improve the chances for survival, economic independence and human dignity for all people.

Description

AJWS' grant making fulfills both Jewish and humanitarian responsibilities for people around the globe. Our grant making emphasizes the links between human rights and sustainable development. Our work also creates opportunities for Jews to become involved in development work while promoting the advancement of cross-cultural understanding. ALL OF OUR VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES TAKE PLACE IN THE DEVELOPING WORLD, NOT LOCALLY.
