Philosophy and Vision
To obtain practical and consistent respect for Human Rights Principles through their practical application in policy-making; and through the conscientisation of our people with the need for Peace, Tolerance and Nonviolent disciplines.
To attain to the fullest degree the Dignity and Integrity due to all Humanity, irrespective of color, geography, creed or knowledge; in order to bring about the triumph of so long-awaited world peace, justice and stability for all humanity.
To advocate the emancipation of humanity in general; and specifically to protect both male and female gender rights, and youth and child rights, by organising regional, national and global Awareness Raising Campaigns for equal empowerment and for developmental and resource empowerment, including environmental protection and conservation.
Therefore, our work cuts across all sectors of the Human Rights field, as set out in Conventions, Declarations and constitutional and legal policies, both nationally and internationally.
