About Human Rights House Foundation

Human Rights House Foundation (HRHF) is an international human rights organisation. It protects, empowers and supports human rights defenders and their organisations through Human Rights Houses, which are collaborative projects of non-governmental organisations working in partnership to promote and advance human rights at home and abroad. Within a Human Rights House, human rights defenders and their organisations remain independent and address the rights and issues that matter to them and the society they live in, while they benefit from cooperation, shared resources, solidarity, expertise, visibility, and strength in advocacy. The Houses and the Human Rights House concept are core to everything HRHF does: from advocacy and awareness raising, to capacity building and protection. Advocating with Houses and partner organisations, the HRFH works to ensure defenders have the freedoms needed to carry out human rights work. The HRHF promotes the fundamental freedoms of assembly, association, and expression, and the right to be a human rights defender.
