Donate

The Center for Global Justice, Human Rights and the Rule of Law depends on generous donations from people like you to accomplish its mission. By God’s grace, and through your faithful support, we are literally changing the world. Whether combatting child sacrifice in Uganda, fighting sex trafficking around the world, or advancing the rule of law in war-torn African nations, the Center is making a lasting impact in the lives of the oppressed and vulnerable around the globe.

There are two specific areas where we particularly need funding: (1) our Internship Grant Program and (2) the East Africa Initiative. By clicking on the “Internship Grant Program” or “East Africa Initiative” boxes on the donation form, you ensure that 100% of your gift will go directly to supporting that endeavor.

Please fill out the form below to donate to the Center.

*Every summer approximately 20 second and third-year law students receive a grant of $4,000-$5,000 to cover the costs of their internship. Students intern with legal organizations around the globe where they work on combatting sex trafficking, protecting children, securing religious freedom, advancing the rule of law, and related human rights issues. Because many students intern overseas with non-profit legal organizations, students are not paid and their costs are quite high (travel, lodging, food, transportation). The grant award covers the students’ costs so they are not shackled with more debt as they prepare for a career in human rights. Our goal is to raise $100,000 each year to cover the cost of 20 internships. To date, 60 interns have served in countries including Cambodia, France, Greece, India, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Mongolia, Pakistan, Nepal, Russia, Rwanda, Uganda, Ghana, Malawi, Ukraine, the United Kingdom, in the Middle East, and throughout the United States. The program has been highly successful, not only because it provides students hands-on legal experience while caring for the oppressed, but also because it has opened partnership opportunities for the Student Staff and even lead to jobs for some of our students. Please visit our intern profiles page to read about some of our past interns.

**Our East Africa Initiative is simply a response to God’s leading. Primarily centered in South Sudan and Uganda (although we hope to expand to other nations in East Africa), the Center for Global Justice’s East Africa Initiative is focused around advancing the rule of law and protecting the weak and vulnerable. In South Sudan, the world’s youngest nation, we are working to help build the rule of law and assist the nation in changing from sharia (Islamic law) to common law, the foundation of the English and American legal systems. Once things stabilize after the recent conflict, the Center, in conjunction with African Leadership and Reconciliation Ministries, intends to travel to South Sudan to host a Christian lawyers conference. Presentation topics include the practice of lawyering and judging as ministry, the Christian foundations of the rule of law in the common law, morality and the law, and how one lawyer can impact the rule of law. It is hoped that this conference will be the first of many efforts of the Center to train and encourage South Sudanese lawyers and judges. In Uganda, Regent Law recently launched a four-week study abroad program in Kampala. In addition, the Center student staff is working on projects involving Uganda and the Center has sponsored numerous internships in Uganda where students work on combatting child sacrifice and land grabbing, among other issues.
