We're helping to build a world in which everyone can live in dignity. To achieve that, our mission is to develop the skills, knowledge and attitudes that will make human rights a reality.

Advancing human rights involves complex political and development challenges. We believe that change largely comes from within countries through the demands of citizens, greater public accountability, and laws and practice which comply with international human rights standards. We work to build the capacity of local civil society to raise awareness, to hold governments to account and to advocate for policies that help make human rights an everyday reality.

We inspire and support the development of policies and practices which promote and protect human rights.
