Fact Finding and Legal Assistance

Fact finding and legal assistance programme supports and strengthens local grass roots organisations and human rights defenders working on minority rights.

The mission of GHRD’s Legal Assistance Fund is to protect, support and defend those whose lives are at risk due to their beliefs, sexual orientation, gender or advocacy for the protection of human rights. Its purpose is to enable emergency legal aid to GHRD’s partners in case they are threatened or implicated in legal cases as a direct result of their human rights work, and to victims of religious, sexual or gender motivated crimes who are unable to register their case with the authorities or are unable to pay legal fees to pursue their case.
