Centre for Human Rights and Democracy in Africa

The Centre for Human Rights and Democracy in Africa (hereinafter CHRDA) is an independent, nongovernmental, apolitical and non-profit making organization dedicated to the protection and advancement of human rights and the promotion of democracy as a political culture in Africa.

We engage in different and sensitive issues related to the advancement of Human Rights and Democracy via a series of projects, and also seeks to foster research in these fields by offering opportunities to Human Rights activists, legal practitioners, graduate and undergraduate students to volunteer, intern and study at the Centre and its partner institutions. With offices in Africa and the United States, we help local activists, scholars, researchers in providing research facilities and creating a culture of respect of human rights and democracy.
