About Stichting Centre for African Justice, Peace and Human Rights:

Stichting Centre for African Justice, Peace and Human Rights is a purpose-driven non-profit Foundation established in The Hague with the aim of promoting justice, peace and human rights in Africa and around the world. For more information about us, we invite you to visit our website at

Ancient traditional ideologies in African communities are founded on communal development. This has impacted ‘the African’ in the sense that he/she thinks of “We” rather than “I”. Therefore, to achieve Ridhika, Africans must ‘work together to grow together’. At CAJPHR, we strongly believe that growth in Africa can be achieved through widespread sensitization and capacity building. We strengthen the capacity of communities in the continent by helping them to come up with long lasting solutions gearing towards development and Ridhika Afrika.

Through the voluntary actions of individuals who have chosen to share our goals and pursue our interests, we conduct trainings, campaigns, rallies, symposiums, and town hall meetings. We distribute books and other informative materials on peace, justice and human rights. We host television and radio programmes on subjects related to our values, vision and mission. We also invite experts and practitioners from different parts of the world to Africa, to build capacity of their contemporaries and exchange ideas on peace, justice and human rights. In general, we engage in dialogues for justice, peace and human rights in Africa.
