“Through relevant and innovative programs we promote public accountability on human rights protection”
We are on a mission to track and respond to incidents of human rights violations. Through our dedicated and trained team of more than 200 human rights monitors and paralegals in all regions within a country we collect, analyze, and respond to violations through modern strategies. Human rights monitoring digital system acts as the cornerstone for effective and efficiency of human rights monitoring.
We founded this organization to advocate for human rights. Through advocacy, we are highly involved in the law-making process in Tanzania and for that reason, we analyze bills from the parliament and law reforms from various ministries. The program works very closely with the Legal Aid Clinics and media outlets to acquire issues for advocacy as well as advising on strategic litigation.
As a result of an increase in reports of rights violations of women, children, and people with disabilities, we designed this initiative to systematically identify and document incidents of groups rights’ violations, as well as engage stakeholders for the purposes of demanding accountability, safeguarding, and promoting the rights of the Marginalized groups in both rural and urban areas.
We believe in data-driven initiatives and evidence-based reporting, that’s why our research unit coordinates all fact findings and explores new strategies for organization sustainability. Research’s insights have been cornerstones for LHRC’s reports such as Tanzania Human Rights Report.
Human Rights and Business is a program that seeks to promote stakeholders’ accountability on undertaking economic activities that adhere to UN Guiding Principles. We want to see Government and businesses uphold the three human rights and Business obligations of protecting respect, and access to remedy.
Since 1995, we have been working for a people-centered constitution in Tanzania, every-day we commit our resources to manage, organize, and coordinate all activities and initiatives related to constitutional amendment.
We engage both traditional media outlets and digital media venues to facilitate access to justice and promote public accountability on human rights protection. Currently, we work with more than 95 community radios in Tanzania. Under this initiative, the LHRC organizes seminars, training, and workshops on human rights and good governance, as well as develops media programs to educate and inform the public.
We believe in a partnership that works and that’s why we collaborate with other organizations sharing the same vision with us on advocating for human rights and justice. Through our partnership, we learn different approaches to finding solutions to the critical challenges of our time. LHRC has an affiliation with
