The work of FHRO is motivated by our vision of a just society for all human beings built on the Universal fundamental principles of the international humanitarian law and the human rights conventions guaranteed by access to justice. We help local activists to bring about just societies.
FHRO is an international, neutral and independent non-profit organization dedicated to the protection of human rights.
FHRO is a voice for the voiceless and an advocate for human rights for people all over the world. It is a human rights advocacy organization that works to ensure a level playing field for all human beings.
Our mission is to enhance the security and the protection of human rights defenders, especially those who fight for their legitimate rights and for the rights of others as they are guaranteed by the international humanitarian law and the human rights conventions, to ensure effective human rights and justice for all.
FHRO works on issues of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights by monitoring, research and analysis in the field of human rights, investigating abuses and exposing the facts, using pressure on governments to respect the rights and secure justice as well as promotion of democracy and the rule of law on the national and international level to stop human rights abuses.
We believe all human beings are entitled to rights and freedoms.
Sometimes rights of individuals or groups in our societies are threatened, oppressed or don’t exist. For these individuals and groups, we stand up by strengthening, supporting and cooperating with integer allied individuals and organizations such as ours to aim for a just society.
We believe that social change at community level starts with the individual and becomes more effective through collaboration with people who share similar needs, values and expertise.
To build social and legal change that is sustainable and long-term, we are guided by a commitment to equality and diversity in our work.
