NED Democracy Stories

NED makes more than 1,000 grants each year to nongovernmental groups in more than 90 countries. Behind each grant is a story about people who share a common desire to live in a world that is free and democratic, and who are willing to dedicate and often risk their lives to achieve that goal.

Read and listen to the compelling stories of a few outstanding NED grantees as they talk about their daily struggles to advance freedom and democracy in their countries.
