Coalition For Human Rights Education (COHRE) is a registered Non-Governmental and Non-profit organization comprising of members drawn from diverse backgrounds who have come together to promote human rights through Advocacy and capacity building to individuals and communities about basic human rights and help change the attitudes and welfare of those affected children, women, LGBTI and other minorities.
It was formed in Uganda by Seven individuals to support people who have been victims of Human Rights violations in order to learn about their experiences and to help improve their well being, while at the same time, teaching people throughout the Country how to work together to develop their knowledge and social understanding of the meaning and importance of Human Rights respect, and how to prevent abuse and live in harmony.
We believe that awareness of one’s rights can help guard against excessive power of individuals exercising inappropriate control over other lives. This knowledge can positively create a fairer, more tolerant society hence giving everyone a chance to flourish as human beings.

    

OUR VISION

A society where knowledge and awareness of own human rights have created a well-informed citizenry to influence equity and dignity for all.

OUR GOAL

To develop and strengthen the well being, health and livelihoods of the people and promote the popularization of the 1949 UN Universal Declaration on Human Rights to improve knowledge on humane, non discriminatory acts and respect of fundamental freedoms.

OUR MISSION

To promote and improve human rights situations, health and livelihoods of the marginalized and vulnerable people, women and youths and empower them towards improvement of their freedoms and well being.
