Overall Objective

 

“To enhance human rights and civic awareness in order to increase the demand for political and social accountability”

The Civic Education Action is the capacity building and civic empowerment component of FHRI's programme. It seeks to promote citizen awareness of basic fundamental rights and obligations; foster public dialogue on how best to protect and preserve human rights whether civil, political, economic, social or cultural; and build a cadre of passionate and knowledgeable human rights defenders. The awareness of these fundamental freedoms and liberties would contribute to the evolution of a strong democratic and human rights culture that will promote participatory decision making for effective service delivery and thus create a strong and effective foundation for a sound premise for democratic governance. The Civic Education Action uses the Public Outreach activity through various means to achieve the objective of promoting dialogue between duty bearers and rights holders for human rights responsive governance and effective service delivery.


The Action has one major activity with four sub components:  

Public Outreach

  • The University Human Rights Network (UHRN).
  • Support to community based human rights associations to improve human rights monitoring and reporting.
  • Support to community based human rights associations to strengthen social accountability.
  • Human rights song (Ddembe Lyo).
