$50,000 for movement support!

Thanks to a generous Rhize supporter, we've received a matching grant. Every dollar up to $25,000 will be matched. And if $50,000 isn't a good way to start off the new year, we don't know what is.

In all seriousness, this opportunity is game-changing. We at Rhize have big plans for 2017, and with this donation we can make our plans a reality. In 2017 we'll be supporting more movements than ever before because, if we learned anything in 2016, it is that movement-building can change the world. 

We are so glad to see supporters who value social movements as much as we do. By the looks of the current political situation around the world, we need social movements now more than ever. Consider helping us reach our goal by donating today. Bringing power back to people in the new year is going to take all of us.

Sungu and the Story of Kenyans for Tax Justice

This grassroots organization was launched in 2013, by Sungu, Antony, and Victoria to campaign against a bill that would levy heavy taxation on basic commodities. They have since spread their scope to support communities living in low income areas and informal settlements in Nairobi to address how taxation policies directly and indirectly affect the lives of these residents.
