People bring about change. We work with local partners and human rights champions to build their capacity to support the demand for human rights.

Human rights violations are the result of many different failings: the lack of responsibility or motivation, the absence of authority, insufficient resources, poor policy making and inadequate communications and training.

Our programmes work where we can to strengthen the capacity of our local partners to address these issues. Through awareness raising, training, research, policy advocacy and holding to account. We support our partners to explore pathways through which citizens can make claims for the protection of the rights of migrant workers, women, people with disabilities and those deprived of their liberty.

We are committed to fundamental human rights principles of universality, indivisibility, interrelatedness, interdependency, equality and non-discrimination. We believe in participation, inclusion, accountability and the rule of law.
