Africa Human Rights Network (AHRN Foundation) in partnership with Fondation Défenseurs D’Afrique (FDDA), is launching a new five years project of temporary relocation for at risk human rights defenders. Selected candidate will stay in Benin for a period of three months. The deadline for applications is August 15th, 2022.
The term HRD is intended to refer to the broad range of activists, journalists, scholars, writers, artists, political figures, lawyers, civil rights defenders, independent media professionals, civil society members, and others working to advance human rights and democracy around the world in a peaceful manner. The Shelter City Benin offers the HRD a shelter for three months, during which they will rest, re-energize, gain new skills, extend their network and raise awareness about the situation in their country. At the end of the programme, participants are expected to return with new tools and energy to carry out their work at home.
