Background:

Global Rights is a foremost human rights and governance capacity-building non-governmental organization (NGO) that has been operating for the past 45 years. The organization works at the intersection of the protection, promotion and fulfilment of human rights through good governance. We provide technical assistance and training to enable local partners to document and expose human rights abuses, conduct community outreach and mobilization, advocate for legal and policy reform, and provide legal and paralegal services.

As part of our efforts to document and showcase the achievements and impact of Global Rights, we are commissioning a consultant to interview stakeholders/partners and compile their stories into a book. Additionally, the book will be transformed into a vlog series to reach a wider audience.
