Sign up as a Suaram Annual Sponsor!

Suaram is launching an annual sponsorship programme where donors can pledge to donate RM500, RM1000, or any other amount to Suaram annually. With this programme, we hope to have a more sustainable funding base, thus enabling Suaram to continue working for human rights in Malaysia.

In previous years, Suaram was primarily funded by human rights grants. Such grants however, have been discontinued because Malaysia is no longer deemed by funders as a priority area for developmental aid. Uncertainty in funding has been negatively affecting the work of Suaram because it hinders our ability to execute our human rights campaigns in a consistent and wholistic manner.

Sustainable donations from ordinary Malaysians are therefore important in ensuring the continued existence of Suaram. For a start, we hope to recruit 50 individuals as annual sponsors for 2015. The draft expenditure budget for the Suaram’s key programmes in 2015 is as follows:
