EAHRHI is founded on the principles of International Human Rights laws, to defend and protect individuals from any form of threat, discrimination or marginalisation, irrespective of race, religion, or association. Our ultimate goal is to ensure that the freedom of every individual as enshrined in the 1948 Universal Declaration is respected and upheld especially in those volatile regions where human rights abuses are eminent.
1. International Human Rights
EAHRHI is founded on the principles of International Human Rights laws, to defend and protect individuals from any form of threat, discrimination or marginalisation, irrespective of race, religion or association.
Our ultimate goal is to ensure that the freedom of every individual as enshrined in the 1948 Universal Declaration is respected and upheld especially in those volatile regions where human rights abuses are eminent. We strongly believe that unless the issues threatening the daily survival of individuals are eliminated collective peace will remain elusive.
2. The Rights of Albinos/Disabled
In most developing nations, minority groups in the society such as the disabled and albinos are grossly neglected. Sometimes they are left to compete for survival under a harsh economic condition without any form of support or protection from their governments.EAHRHI is motivated by this unbearable and deplorable conditions that disables find themselves to speak and take actions to ameliorate their living conditions. We provide clothes, food and other relief materials to support them.
We also advocate for Disabled/Albinos’ rights to equal opportunity at work places. Some of these people are skilled & qualified for employment but are denied such opportunities because of their physical deformity. EAHRHI global campaign focuses on raising awareness on discrimination and its negative impacts on the disabled & albinos. We call on government at all levels to propound laws that prohibit social discrimination or marginalisation & adopt policies that will address the need of the disabled.
Furthermore, EAHRHI raises awareness against political disenfranchisement based on race, gender, religion, social class or political association. We promote liberal democracy and strict adherence to the rule of law. No citizen of any country should be denied his political rights. States are reminded to protect the interest of the minority group and not to scheme them out of their political benefits.
3. The Rights of the African Girl-Child
Child abuse all over the globe including the developing regions like Africa, Asia and Latin America still remains one of the greatest challenges facing the United Nations. While some children grow and learn under a loving parent, some miss-out in this all important stage of life due to issues like natural disaster, conflict, poverty, HIV/AIDS and some illegal practices like forced or early marriage. Millions of children go through different kinds of abuses, including economic and sexual exploitation, gender discrimination in education and child labour.
The UNICEF global estimate indicates that about 150 million children aged 5-14 are in one form of employment or the other, especially in sub-Saharan Africa, where more than a third of the children in the region are involved in child labour. This is an epidemic that must be stamped out at all cost to avoid future calamity. Therefore, EAHRHI stands on the Convention on Rights of the Child (CRC) to speak, act and defend the rights of every child.
4. Women Rights
Studies have shown that women are the most vulnerable gender in human race. They are often subjected to inhuman treatments like gender discrimination, domestic violence and Female Gender mutilation (FGM). In the United Kingdom alone, about 66,000 women have undergone FGM, while more than 20,000 girls are at the risk every year. It is also acknowledged that rape & other sexual assaults on women are continually on the increase.
Similarly, in Africa, women undergo humiliating circumstances resulting from barbaric and uncivilized traditional practices. For instance, some customary laws in Africa forbid windows from inheriting their late husband’s properties. Often times these cases are ruled in favour of the man’s family members. The EAHRHI firmly supports the fight against domestic violence, human trafficking, rape and gender discrimination in all its totality.
5. Environment Protection & Green Life
At EAHRHI, we understand the importance of environmental protection and the dangers climate change possess to human lives, including the threats to our collective peace and security, health, hunger and migration problems.
We are calling on governments and other relevant agencies and institutions to adopt effective and comprehensive measures to control climate change. Such measures must be legally binding, just and sustainable. EAHRHI advocates for a stronger international cooperation in the fight against climate change. The richer nations should support the developing countries with technology, funding and human resources required to implement carbon emission policies.
