Citizenship Education

Society for Human Rights Education

Society for Human Rights Education is an arm of the Africa Centre for Citizens Orientation with the aim of creating necessary awareness on human rights as enshrined in our nation constitution and other frameworks and resolutions believing that human rights is a local issue with global attention. The full enjoyment of human rights and welfare is possible only when the community shares positive values and has the means to provide protection. SHRE mobilizes local communities to build awareness for the rights and welfare of children, youth, and women. SHRE supports the health and education of these groups and helps their families and communities to stand up and break the chain of poverty. SHRE listens to and provides voices to the most vulnerable and involves local groups in the planning, decision-making and implementation of every project. Professional skill training, education and volunteer programs are provided by SHRE to raise the voices of these groups in making lasting impacts in their communities.

Programs

Initiative for Rural Development (IRD)

IRD focus on addressing the issue of rural underdevelopment by working with the rural community dwellers. Underserved communities must have a voice, invested interest, and ownership in the development of their land, economy, education, rights and values. Through listening to their needs, empowering their belief in change, and working beside them to implement practical solutions, real progress can be made that does not result in further disempowerment. Cultivating a thorough understanding of the complex realities on the ground is the key to empowerment and collective action. This program set to provide capacity building, funding and human resources to women, girls and children and community-based organizations through Africa. In partnership with other stakeholders, we will implement solutions that improve social, environmental, educational and economic conditions at the community level. The mission of this program is to overcome poverty by empowering and education communities and their citizens to be agents of their own sustainable change and growth.
