Campaign for U.N. Reform
http://www.cunr.org/

The vision of the Campaign for United Nations Reform is an effective, democratic, and accountable United Nations system able to fulfill the goals set forth in the preamble of its Charter. These goals include preventing war, protecting fundamental human rights, establishing conditions for justice and respect for international law, and promoting social progress with sustainable standards of living. The mission of the Campaign for United Nations Reform is to build political will within the United States to promote a more democratic, accountable, and transparent U.N.system; and to increase the resources and authority needed by the U.N. system to achieve the goals set forth in its Charter. Recognizing that U.S. support is essential if the U.N.
system is to be strengthened, the role of the Campaign for U.N. Reform is to lobby the U.S. Congress and Administration to take actions to achieve these goals, to make advocacy of a strengthened U.N. system an election issue, and to support the election and appointment of officials who share our vision.

GOAL
http://www.goal.ie

In 1977 Dublin sports journalists John O'Shea and four friends decided to set up an aid organisation dedicated to helping the poorest of the poor across the developing world. By 1984 GOAL medical teams were working at the frontline of the terrible famines in Ethiopia and Sudan. Over the years, worse was to come. In Somalia, GOAL worked to fight the deadly combination of war and famine. Since then, GOAL has been there to pick up the pieces after civil war in Angola and Liberia, to care for the flood of Rwandan refugees stranded in Tanzania and Zaire, and to help rehouse the devastated citizens of Gorazde in Bosnia. Since 1997 GOAL has sent nearly 600 volunteers to over twenty countries in Africa, Asia and Eastern Europe and has spent nearly $50 million. Our mission is the same as it was in 1977, to help the poorest of the poor. Sadly, we are as badly needed now as we were then. GOAL's ethos is simple. We believe that every human being has the right to the fundamentals of life, food, water, shelter, healthcare and literacy. Throughout the Third World, people are dying for want of those basic rights. Our mission is to respond quickly and efficiently with emergency supplies. We believe that the money we collect must be spent directly on the people who need it most. To do that, we keep our administration costs to a bare minimum. We also believe it is essential to train local people so that they can continue to provide healthcare and other services long after GOAL has left the country.

Grameen Bank (GB)
http://www.grameen.com/
Grameen Bank (GB) has reversed conventional banking practice by removing the need for collateral and created a banking system based on mutual trust, accountability, participation and creativity. GB provides credit to the poorest of the poor in rural Bangladesh, without any collateral. At GB, credit is the poverty and it serves as a catalyst in the over all development of socio-economic conditions of the poor who have been kept outside the banking orbit on the ground that they are poor and hence not bankable. Professor Muhammad Yunus, the founder of "Grameen Bank" and its Managing Director, reasoned that if financial resources can be made available to the poor people on terms and conditions that are appropriate and reasonable, "these millions of small people with their millions of small pursuits can add up to create the biggest development wonder".

Physicians for Human Rights (PHR)
http://www.phrusa.org/

Physicians for Human Rights (PHR) is an organization of health professionals, scientists, and concerned citizens that uses the knowledge and skills of the medical and forensic sciences to investigate and prevent violations of international human rights and humanitarian law.
Since 1986, PHR members have worked to stop torture, disappearances, and political killings by governments and opposition groups; to improve health and sanitary conditions in prisons and detention centers; to investigate the physical and psychological consequences of violations of humanitarian law in internal and international conflicts; to defend medical neutrality and the right of civilians and combatants to receive medical care during times of war; to protect health
professionals who are victims of violations of human rights; and to prevent medical complicity in torture and other abuses. PHR conducts educational and training projects for health professionals, members of the judiciary, and human rights advocates on the application of medical and forensic skills in the investigation of violations of human rights.

Refugees International
http://www.refintl.org/
Refugees International (Washington, DC, USA). Founded in 1979 in response to the forced repatriation of thousands of Cambodian and Vietnamese refugees, Refugees International (RI) provides early warning in crises of mass exodus. It seeks to serve as the advocate of the unrepresented -- the refugee. In recent years, Refugees International has moved from its initial focus on Indochinese refugees to global coverage, conducting almost 30 emergency missions in the last four years. We have answered the emergency calls of Kurds stranded along the mountainous Turkish border; Burmese forced to flee to Bangladesh; war victims in Bosnia; Africans fleeing strife and famine in Liberia, Ethiopia, and Somalia; and Rwandans surging into Tanzania and Zaire. The organization mixes quiet diplomacy and the power of the press to mobilize governments and engage the UN. Our on-the-ground emergency assessment paves the way for relief agencies and human rights organizations to step in with life saving measures.
