WHAT WE DO

We invest in Human Rights Education, through online trainings for all with a participatory and tailored approach. Along with local stakeholders, ministries and civil organisations, we engage in large scale public campaigns, distribution of educational material and awareness raising through long cycles of peer to peer groups led by youth and PWDs. We also have a victim support unit with comprehensive case management provision, legal and psychosocial counselling, special needs education services integrated in schools. Last but not least, we have a special program for vulnerable groups including independent living counselling for people with disabilities.

YOUTH CLUBS

A Dis-Moi youth club, is a club that brings together young people between the ages of 15 and 24 through activities, talks, and conferences on human rights but also on the collective responsibilities of young people encountering problems and violations of human rights in the world and in their daily environments. Dis-Moi is committed to developing active, rights-conscious citizens who can help protect and raise awareness of the rights of others around them and the environment in which they live. We want to train young people who want to be the leaders of tomorrow, who can be given a chance to speak out, act and carry the cause of human rights high in the South West Indian Ocean. Dis-moi youth clubs exists since 2015.

A syllabus has been designed, created and thought for the youth in 2023, where the end product will be to have leaders that can stand up for their rights but more that can stand up for HUMAN RIGHTS and be called per se A Human Right Defender.
