"Ubuntu Human Rights International strives to promote the UN Declaration of Human Rights."
The core of our work focuses on Human Rights Principles, the UN Declaration of Human Rights, the African Charter, and Human Rights and International Law, using the philosophy of Ubuntu: Recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family, which is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.
THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY proclaims THIS UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS as a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations, to the end that every individual and every organ of society. Keeping this Declaration constantly in mind, we shall strive by teaching and educating to promote and have respect for these rights and freedoms and by progressive measures, national and international, to secure their universal and effective recognition and observance, both among the peoples of Member States themselves and among the peoples of territories under their jurisdiction.
Our services integrate information, education, training, consultation, advocacy, and research on Human Rights, with the focus on promoting Ubuntu. Together this integrated approach works to promote and strengthen human rights.
In delivering these services we often coordinate with other service providers to ensure the most effective allocation of resources. We also strive to work with all sectors when delivering services to ensure the broadest possible approach to the elimination of discrimination and protection of rights of all individuals as humans. This is the meaning of African philosophy word “Ubuntu”
