We are delighted to announce that the application period for the 5th East Africa Human Rights Training Program (EAHRP), is now open and we will be accepting applications until January 31, 2017.
The East Africa Human Rights Program (EAHRP) is the human rights education initiative of alumni of the annual International Human Rights Training Program from the East African region and alumni of the East Africa Human Rights Program in partnership with Equitas.
The EAHRP is a regional training program which provides a unique opportunity for human rights workers, defenders, activists and educators to deepen their understanding of human rights and the essential role of human rights education in effecting and sustaining social change. The program’s participatory methodology provides a framework for the sharing of expertise, experience and reflection among a tremendously diverse group of participants, facilitators and highly qualified resource persons. The program contributes to networking at both the national and regional levels and to collaborative partnerships among representatives of civil society, national human rights institutions, regional, and international organisations, and governments.
