Protect Human Rights and Governance

Article 8 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that “Everyone has the right to an effective remedy by the competent national tribunals for acts violating the fundamental rights granted him by the constitution or by law.” The efficient justice system not only holds individuals and state officials accountable but also sets the norms of behaviour for all citizens enshrined in the national legal frameworks.

The Democracy and Governance program helps to create an enabling environment for youth to learn, grow and contribute towards national development goals through democratic participation. Our goal is to work collectively with other institutions, youth and policymakers to bring effective and equitable delivery of services to citizens; especially the poor, indigenous and local communities.
