WELCOME NOTE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
Welcome to the Network of African National Human Rights Institutions (NANHRI) E-learning Platform.
The e-learning platform aims at building the capacity of staff members from African National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs) in specific thematic areas such as equality and non-discrimination, torture prevention, business and human rights, conflict resolution and peace building, human rights mechanisms and other emerging human rights issues. It also aims to create linkages, foster learning and exchange of ideas amongst African NHRIs on human rights discourses in the region and globally.
The creation of this platform aligns with NANHRI’s goal of building the capacity of African NHRIs to effectively carry out their mandates of protection and promotion of human rights. To assist NHRIs to fulfill their objectives, NANHRI has assembled a team of experienced human rights experts with diverse skills and knowledge to supervise, guide and moderate the courses being offered through this platform.
This initiative comes at a time when technology is revolutionizing and creating positive impacts on how human rights work is being undertaken globally. Subsequently, some African governments have made and are continuing to make commendable steps towards the promotion and protection of human rights.
NANHRI will be updating its members, partners, stakeholders on the upcoming courses and who the target participants are. It is expected that users will find this e-learning platform a valuable tool in their work.
