Report This Organization

At CAJPHR, our vision is to achieve a peaceful Africa with an effective judicial system and respect for human rights. Our mission is to advance peace, justice and human rights in Africa.

The Centre for African Justice, Peace and Human Rights (CAJPHR) is a foundation which has its official seat in the municipality of The Hague (Netherlands). We engage in promoting justice, peace and human rights through education, awareness, campaign, training, outreach (Legal/Medical) and capacity building in Africa.

How best can people know their rights or claim same except through awareness, education and training? How best can people learn to maintain peace? How best can justice be promoted and applied. To an extent the answer to theses questions revolves around education, campaign, capacity building, training and awareness, etc.

We have planned many events aimed at creating awareness, educating and training people to know their rights and what help is available to them in the event of violation. Our brilliant and enthusiastic Committee members help us in designing strategies for tackling common issues that hinder peace, justice and human rights in Africa and around the world.

We lobby and collaborate with private individuals, non governmental organizations, institutions and governments to promote justice, peace and human rights through different avenues.

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.

CAJPHR is committed to:

  • Capacity Building
  • Prosecuting Sexual Violence Against Males
  • Women Empowerment
  • The Right to Quality Education
