The “Get Organized for Human Rights” program is an annual program which was the result of the transformation of our Economic Social Cultural Rights (ESCR) training for our partners into a continuous grassroots capacity building with a focus on the community exchange and experiential learning processes.
The programme will bring together 20- 25 community organizers/leaders from different partnering communities and social movements who are fighting for human rights from around the world.
It aims to bring our grassroots partners to consolidate our commitment towards a global advocacy campaign as well as building stronger solidarity amongst the struggling community. This will be achieved through the programme objectives which are:
1. To share and take stock of urban poverty ( as well as discussions on rural poverty) – locally and globally including field visit to urban settlement communities;
2. To sharpen our understanding of human rights and how our daily struggle for survival are intricately linked;
3. Community organizers exchange to sharpen our skills as community organizer based on human rights ;
4. To strengthen the global solidarity of grassroot networks amongst Dignity International partners to strategize an advocacy plan in fighting poverty locally and globally
5. To strengthen the trust and cooperation between Dignity International and its partners including bilateral and multilateral cooperation among partners themselves.
