Project: Strengthen, Empower, Enforce Human Rights

SeeHR


Overview

 

From 2017 to 2020, the SeeHR Project will work in 10 communities in the Stann Creek and Toledo districts to

improve the overall well-being of the population by  enhancing knowledge and  awareness of human rights and contributing to ensuring their protection. 

 

Updates and Highlights

  • Of the incidences reported, most are handled as Neglectful or Biased Investigations, Indigenous Land Rights, Prohibited Immigrants, Asylum Seekers and Refugees, Sexual Harassment and Discrimination based on Sexual Orientation among others. 

Expected Results
