The main objective of the training programme is to build the capacity of representatives of African human rights NGOs with knowledge and skills to effectively use the African human rights and international system in their work towards human rights promotion and protection on the continent.
At the end of the training course, participants would also participate in the NGOs Forum (Forum on the Participation of NGOs in the Ordinary Session of the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights) as well as the public sessions of the African Commission.
This is to enable participants gain first hand knowledge in the practical and theoretical application of the one of the most important regional human rights mechanism, i.e. the African Commission and at the same time provide the platform to practice their newly gained skills.
In addition, the training programme is designed to enable participants to acquire in-depth understanding of the interaction and complementarities of the regional and international human rights systems.
Interested applicants must meet the following selection requirements:
Both the ACDHRS and OHCHR would raise funds for the organisation of the event and would therefore be able to offer partial scholarship to qualified applicants.
A certificate of attendance would be awarded to participants at the end of the training programme.
Application Deadline; 15th August.
