Prisoners’ Rights Project (unpaid internship)

  • Buea, South-West Region, Cameroon

For more information or to apply contact blaise.chamango@humanisright.org or humanisrightintl@gmail.com or call +237675019143

The Prisoners' Rights Defense Project aims to observe the conditions of detainees in the Cameroonian prison system and to subsequently give them assistance, both in a legal way and by trying to improve the above mentioned conditions.

The Prisoners' Rights Defense Project was originally created as a strong mean of control of the inhuman conditions of detainees in the Cameroonian prisons, in order to report lacks, abuses and acts of violence, especially related to human rights, and thus to improve the standards of living in jail.

Interns will assess the prison conditions, give legal assistance to untried prisoners without sufficient financial means, by also working with a number of pro bono lawyers who cooperate with Human IS Right.

Interns will also contribute in developing the programme even further to our next step: give a second opportunity to people who were unjustly jailed. HisR will assist prisoners after their release by primarily giving them an opportunity to find a job and therefore to be independent and create a new own life.

Basic Requirements for International Interns:

  • Ability to work independently within a team and to drive projects forward with minimal supervision
  • Ability and motivation to contribute effectively to both the organization's field work and office responsibilities (both are vital to HisR success)
  • A general understanding of human rights and the desire to learn more
  • Willingness to familiarize oneself with all documents relating to the past work of the intern's particular project
  • Adherence to the confidentiality of sensitive information pertaining to HisR's work
  • Respect for the copyright nature of all written documents prepared by interns, all of which shall be the property of Human is Right
  • Fluency in spoken and written English
  • Computer literacy
