Over the past few decades armed violence has affected millions of people around the world. Serious abuses against populations such as torture, forced displacement, extra-judiciary killings, arbitrary detention are regularly reported.
While many actors rightly focus on denouncing these violations, protecting and assisting victims or helping them to pursue legal recourse, fewer actors try to prevent abuses from happening.
Fight for Humanity leads campaigns to promote human rights and reinforce their respect. It uses the following main means for achieving its objectives:
Promoting respect of human rights, women's and children's rights, diversity and peace through awareness-raising campaigns
Training key local actors including civil society, community-based organizations on human rights
Fight for Humanity aims at producing positive impact with its work and will only intervene after an assessment and when we think a positive influence is possible. Yet, our understanding of impact in advocacy work (and especially targeting actors in complex situations and with strongly defined value frames that may be in counter or at least not fully aligned with the values we want to promote) is that only contribution not attribution can be evidenced. We see ourselves as one actor in a highly complex context, where all actors need to interact responsively in order to assure positive outcomes and do-no harm.
