ABOUT US

What we do

Ancient traditional ideologies in African communities are founded on communal development. This has impacted ‘the African’ in the sense that he/she thinks of “We” rather than “I”. Therefore, to achieve Ridhika, Africans must ‘work together to grow together’. At CAJPHR, we strongly believe that growth in Africa can be achieved through widespread sensitization and capacity building. We strengthen the capacity of communities in the continent by helping them to come up with long lasting solutions gearing towards development and Ridhika Afrika.

Through the voluntary actions of individuals who have chosen to share our goals and pursue our interests, we conduct trainings, campaigns, rallies, symposiums, and town hall meetings.

We distribute books and other informative materials on peace, justice and human rights. We host television and radio programmes on subjects related to our values, vision and mission. We also invite experts and practitioners from different parts of the world to Africa, to build capacity of their contemporaries and exchange ideas on peace, justice and human rights. In general, we engage in dialogues for justice, peace and human rights in Africa.

We also

◆ Engage in dialogues for Human Rights in Africa
◆ Engage in dialogues for Peace in Africa 
◆ Engage in dialogues for Justice in Africa

Through the support of our sponsors and volunteers, we conduct trainings, create awareness, organise campaigns and educate people on matters pertaining to justice, peace and human rights. With the collaboration of legal experts from around the globe, we conduct legal outreach in African Countries. We promote education at the grassroots by applying for charity to sponsor projects in public primary schools. Some of the projects include sinking of water boreholes, donation of seats, books and other reading materials to the schools. We build capacity in different fields of expertise however, we go the extra mile to build capacity in Human Rights and Criminal Law.
