Brief Profile of Stand Ghana
Stand Ghana, Incorporated is a human rights, non – profit organization focused on promoting human rights of vulnerable and marginalized persons in Ghana, particularly those living and working in mining and other remote communities. We work to advance Social Justice and eliminate Inequalities, Injustice and Unfair Discrimination through collaborative and positive engagements with all stakeholders.
Our core activities include: Human Rights Advocacy, Education, Research & Consultancy, Empowerment of Women & Girls, Environmental campaigns and Policy Analysis.
We are in a country with a young, developing democracy. While human rights is an indispensable part of any true democracy and meaningful development; and has been duly guaranteed in the 1992 constitution of the Republic of Ghana, upholding these rights is still far-fetched. Too many people continue to suffer discrimination, injustice, inequality and other human rights abuses on daily basis; and, too many people lack knowledge about their human rights and obligations .
Stand Ghana seeks to advance true respect for human rights values, principles and standards; support victims of human rights abuses and facilitate the empowerment of vulnerable individuals and groups, particularly women and girls to better enjoy their rights.
A catalyst for making human rights real for all, particularly, vulnerable and marginalized persons and groups.
Our Core Values
Respect. Equality. Dignity. Responsibility. Fairness. Meaningful Development
