Survival is the worldwide movement for tribal peoples whose lives, lands and livelihoods are threatened.
Throughout Africa, Asia and beyond, tribal peoples face challenges to their land and welfare from mining, cattle ranchers, missionaries and other intruders bringing violence and disease.
For over 40 years, we have brought attention to their situations, supported their struggles and given them a platform to convey their message. We have supported court cases, launched massive media stories and carried out high-profile protests with great success.
Our work has led to the demarcation of tribal reserves, the abandonment of oil exploration projects and a far greater global awareness of the issue.
All this happens independently of governmental or corporate sponsorship, thanks to our supporters. We work towards a world where tribal peoples have their land rights respected, their human rights upheld and the opportunity to decide their futures.
