The movement for tribal peoples. Survival is the only organization working for tribal peoples’ rights worldwide
Survival International works with hundreds of tribal communities and organizations. They are funded almost entirely by concerned members of the public and some foundations. They will not take national government money, because governments are the main violators of tribal peoples’ rights, nor will they take money from companies which might be abusing tribal peoples.
Survival helps tribal peoples protect their lives, lands and human rights. They oppose the racist attitudes which underpin the way tribal peoples are viewed, and seek to stop the illegal and unjust way they are treated.
They work to change racist attitudes towards, and false beliefs about, tribal peoples. Their vision is to foster an understanding of, and respect for, tribal peoples and the choices they make about their futures.
Survival's vision is for a world where tribal peoples are recognized and respected; an end to the unjust treatment tribal peoples are subjected to; and a world where tribal peoples are free to live on their own lands, safe from violence, oppression and exploitation.
