About Us

About Us

AFHR is a Human Rights Advocacy group that has existed since August 2019 and is working towards creating a just environment for social, cultural, economic rights using regenerative support system that promotes and protects Human Rights and the environment

The founders of AFHR strongly believe that there is a disconnection between the Justice System (the policy makers and practitioners) and access to Social-economic and cultural rights. While ‘evidence-based policy making’ is a common phrase thrown around, there is an ever-widening chasm in-between research, policymaking, and practice. Our mission is to envision a just and equitable society.

At AFHR we believe in the principles and ideals of rigorous advocacy, awareness and networking through research, sensitizations, trainings, skills development. Our mission implores us to ‘empower the people so as to promote, reinforce and safeguard Social economic-cultural rights and good governance in the country’ for better livelihood and economic development of Masses using the bottom-up approach while fine-tuning the quality of governance, strategic planning, policy and programme management, process reform, and bridging the gap between policy makers and policy users

There is an increase of human rights violations accompanied by a number of social-economic inferiorities that encroach on the human rights of individuals and pose a threat to their wellbeing/welfare.
