Human Rights Watch
Human Rights Watch investigates and reports on abuses happening in all corners of the world. We are roughly 450 people of 70-plus nationalities who are country experts, lawyers, journalists, and others who work to protect the most at risk, from vulnerable minorities and civilians in wartime, to refugees and children in need. We direct our advocacy towards governments, armed groups and businesses, pushing them to change or enforce their laws, policies and practices. To ensure our independence, we refuse government funding and carefully review all donations to ensure that they are consistent with our policies, mission, and values. We partner with organizations large and small across the globe to protect embattled activists and to help hold abusers to account and bring justice to victims.
International Federation of Social Workers – Africa
Social Work has a long history in Africa stemming back to pre-colonial times. The region now comprises 25 IFSW members who are working toward the establishment of a recognized social work profession association in all the region’s countries, and the visibility of the profession’s contributions in addressing the complex factors of poverty, HIV eradication, gender equality and self-led community empowerment.
