The Claude Leon Foundation


The Black Sash Trust is a 63 year old veteran human rights organisation whose current programmes draw on a rich institutional heritage of advocating for social justice in South Africa.
Their mission is to work towards the realisation of socio-economic rights, as outlined in the SA Constitution, with emphasis on social security and social protection for the most vulnerable, to reduce poverty and inequality. They believe the implementation of socio economic rights demands open, transparent and accountable governance (state, corporate and civil society).
They currently implement three programmes namely:
1) Advocacy in Partnership/ Campaigns;
2) Citizen Based Monitoring; and
3) Rights Information, Education and Training

The Claude Leon Foundation has supported the Black Sash since 2013 and currently funds the Hands Off Our Grants (HOOG) campaign.
