Priority purposes of the Fund

The Fund is a financial pool that will use its resources and its regional network for two priority purposes:

  • to respond to immediate legal protection needs of HRDs whose rights are at risk or already restricted; and
  • to initiate or support projects and activities with the purpose of reinforcing legal protection practices.

It is accessible to all HRDs and human rights organisations in the Great Lakes region of Africa, with a special focus on HRDs living in remote areas.
