Human rights education

Our human rights intervention focuses on demanding respect and ending hate crimes through implementation of rights as contained in treaties that our member countries are signatories to. We will advocate for the integration of the protection and promotion of human rights into programmes and projects targeting the community.  Through human rights education we will support regional initiatives that demand the legal protection of rights of LGBTQI persons as equal citizens.

We will create an understanding of issues around gender identity and sexual orientation and comprehensive human rights policies as a matter of right.  The interfaith network will seek to build stronger regional and global coalition in support of human rights of LGBTQI persons, celebrate important days such as human rights day, and hold panel discussions, challenging stigma and discrimination and other barriers to health care for LGBTQI persons.

We will conduct specialised trainings on criminal justice for law enforcement agencies to enhance capacities for recognizing, understanding, and suppressing hate crimes.
