Global Human Rights Defence (GHRD) believes that through socio-economic empowerment individuals can claim their place in society and overcome their role as victims. GHRD’s projects take different approaches but always aim to improve the life circumstances of the individual and enable them to change their life. In their new and empowered position they are more aware of human rights violations and can fight them easier.

Activities of human rights empowerment are wide ranging and include:

  • Legal assistance

  • Education

  • Community building

  • Skill and vocational training
