KIOS supports selected projects in Burundi and Tibetan exile. Previously KIOS supported  selected projects in Bangladesh, Pakistan and Ethiopia but doesn’t accept new project proposals from these countries.

Burundi

Recently KIOS’ support in Burundi has been distributed to projects improving the rights of prisoners and the rights of women. Furthermore, KIOS has supported East and Horn of Africa Human Rights Defenders Project EHAHRDP’s project aiming at strengthening the human rights coalition in Burundi. Human rights violations have increased in Burundi in the past years. The opposition, civil society actors, journalists and human rights defenders face continuous harassment by the regime. The freedom of expression has diminished, and political violence, arbitrary arrests, disappearances and torture have increased.

Tibetan organizations in exile

KIOS has supported Tibetan organizations in exile. The organizations have provided human rights education and improved the rights of women among the refugee communities. KIOS also welcomes new project proposals from the Tibetan civil society organizations in exile. Throughout the past years China has continued to tighten its control over Tibet further restricting Tibetans’ fundamental and human rights. Especially restrictions on freedom of expression and religion, as well as forced evictions of nomads, are among the most severe challenges in regard to the realization of human rights.
