Vision and Mission

Human Dignity is a non-profit association working for the respect, protection and realisation of economic, social and cultural rights in sub-Saharan Africa.

The objective pursued is the full realisation of economic, social and cultural rights in order to improve the living conditions of populations in Sub-Saharan Africa, in particular, through the implementation of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and the African Charter on Human and Peoples' Rights.

Our vision is of a world in which everyone lives in dignity. Water and sanitation, food, health, work, education, housing, culture and environment are recognised as rights and enjoyed – in full - by all. 

Our mission is to strive for the respect, protection and realisation of all economic, social and cultural rights for all. We seek to empower and contribute to transforming the lives of people and communities through the realisation of their human rights.

In May 2021, after a participatory reflection process carried out during the year 2020, Human Dignity General Assembly adopted its new strategy for five years.
