The National Coalition of Human Rights’ Defenders –Uganda (NCHRD-U) requires directors, employees and members to observe high standards of business and personal ethics in the conduct of their duties and responsibilities.
Our aim is to protect and promote the work of HRDs in safe and secure environment through linkages with national, regional and international like-minded entities.
The NCHRD-U uses its values to make decisions and these deliberate choices focus on what is important to us as HRDs, supporting us with vital capacity building, joint advocacy efforts, risk assessments and practical protection support. When values are shared, they build internal cohesion in a group. Friends of ZOKA (FoZ) is an Environmental Rights NGO that advocates for rights to clean environment, protection of forests and wildlife reserves, redress in energy and climate change emergencies. As FoZ, we always say that; We must know that No amount of impunity Globally can tame nature, it’s only respect and living in harmony with nature can do so. If we forget that nature is supreme, nature will always displace our wealth and sovereignty.
