Since our formation, in 1992, we have saved the lives of thousands of people in Caribbean and African countries.
WHO WE ARE
The Death Penalty Project (DPP) began in 1992 when Saul Lehrfreund joined law firm Simons Muirhead and Burton to work specifically on death row cases with the late Bernard Simons. Parvais Jabbar joined soon afterwards.
In 2006, The Death Penalty Project Limited was formed with its sister charity, The Death Penalty Charitable Trust. The charitable status has enabled the DPP to apply for grants from a diverse range of funders and it is now supported by the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the United Nations Voluntary Fund for Victims of Torture, as well as a number of charitable foundations.

Essential to their work is the continued support of SMAB, which provides offices for the DPP and covers many of its other administrative costs.
In 2016, the DPP was granted special consultative status with ECOSOC.
