Social cohesion and community-building

Capacity-building through human rights education promotes values, beliefs and attitudes that encourage all individuals to uphold their own rights and those of others. It develops an understanding of everyone's common responsibility to make human rights a reality in each community.

Our educational programmes and unique method constitutes an essential contribution to bring human rights issues to the surface. In using the local cultural heritage, taboo questions can be discussed and the issue raised, in a "safe space" where everyone in the society has a voice; children, women, men and elders. This represents an important investment in the endeavor to achieve a just society in which all human rights of all persons are valued and respected. At least talked about and reflected.

Bridging Ages work through a rights-based approach to development in order to achieve a positive transformation of power relations among the various actors. The aim with our programmes is to strengthen the capacity of the community as a whole, create understanding and give voices to all in order to build a just and democratic society for all.
