Our mission is to promote and protect the fundamental human rights of minorities and marginalised groups.
Under the banner of “Stand Up for Human Rights”, GHRD alongside our partners, celebrated Human Rights Day 2019. Events were held in Pakistan, Nepal and Bangladesh, aimed to educate the next generation on the rights owed to them and work together to put an end to discriminatory practices, violence against women and children, and child labour.
