Founded in 2017, Manushya Foundation serves as a bridge to engage, mobilise, and empower agents of change by: connecting humans through inclusive coalition building and; by developing strategies focused at placing local communities’ voices in the centre of human rights advocacy and domestic implementation of international human rights obligations and standards.

 

Manushya Foundation strengthens the solidarity and capacity of communities and grassroots to ensure they can constructively raise their own concerns and provide solutions in order to improve their livelihoods and the human rights situation on the ground.

Who We Are
We are an Asia regional non-governmental organisation promoting community empowerment to advance human rights, social justice & peace.

WHO WE ARE

We are an Asia regional non-governmental organisation promoting community empowerment to advance human rights, social justice & peace.

 

VISION

We believe in the ‘infinite positive power of humans’ in building inclusive, just, equal, sustainable and peaceful societies in Asia; where individuals, communities, governments and non-state actors respect, fulfill and advance the enjoyment of universal and indivisible human rights for all, leaving no one behind.

MISSION

We connect diverse and inclusive communities of humans across Asia through coalition building, to ensure they are at the center of the human rights and sustainable development responses of their countries. By building capacities on human rights monitoring mechanisms, sharing experiences, developing innovative strategies and strengthening solidarity, Manushya Foundation empowers communities to advance human rights, social justice and peace.

WHAT WE DO

 

OUR THREE-STEP EMPOWERMENT APPROACH

ENGAGE

We ENGAGE communities by building their capacities on all UN human rights monitoring mechanisms to enable them to participate effectively. We provide communities with the tools to efficiently build credible evidence, enabling them to investigate, monitor and document the human rights situation on the ground to hold their governments accountable on their human rights obligations.

MOBILISE

We MOBILISE communities around human rights movements through CSOs coalitions, created to achieve equality and to build solidarity and cooperation within and among communities. Energised as one strong, unified voice, communities are visible, credible and heard. 

EMPOWER

We EMPOWER communities by placing them at the centre of human rights response, engaging constructively and providing solutions to their governments to address concerns, gaps and needs, ultimately advancing human rights. Communities own their issues and become 'agents of change', bringing back solutions at the local level to further empower their peers, ensuring no one is left behind.

THEMATIC FOCUS

Establishing strong, intersectional networks to further social justice.
