Promotion of Human Rights, Mosaiko

ORGANISATION BACKGROUND AND LOCAL CONTEXT

Founded in 1997 by the Dominican Missionaries, Mosaiko is a non-profit Angolan organisation. It was the first Angolan institution to assume clearly in its mission the promotion of Human Rights (HR) in Angola. Gui-ded by a strong social commitment, the objective of Mosaiko is the res-pect for human dignity and the development of the Angolan society, as a result of each and everybody’s contribution. Its intervention is focu-sed on the production and dissemination of materials about HR, training of different social actors in the HR-related topics, legal counselling, judi-cial follow-up of cases, and social research aimed at improving know-ledge and action in the Angolan context. The project “Promotion of Human Rights in Angola” intends to reinforce the role of civil society in the promotion of HR and democratic reform to increase participation and political representation.
