Thirdway Human Rights & Development

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: October 25, 2013, 2:48 AM

Description

Thirdway is an international volunteer-driven organisation that is committed to the universality and indivisibility of human rights and it strives to satisfy those rights through active, hands-on programmes. With a focus on Africa, particularly Ghana and all across the world, we develop projects that promote self-sustainability in education, micro-credit and human rights awareness. We employ highly interactive programmes requiring strong commitment at the local level to create foundations that facilitate movement beyond dependence on foreign aid though needed perpetually. As with many other human rights groups, our actions are based upon the firm belief that all people, simply by virtue of our common humanity, have certain fundamental rights, which are indivisible and universal, and that the totality of all human rights are closely intertwined with efforts at development and the creation of open societies. Therefore, our work is centred on the idea that the realization of civil and political rights cannot occur so long as social and economic rights are not both recognized and protected. The mother of a family may have the right to freely cast her ballot in fair elections and participate in government, but she can't fully exercise that right if she is beset by concerns of how she will afford the school fees for her children's education or how she will provide tonight's dinner. Ultimately our goal is to increase independence from the bottom up while significantly decreasing the need for international aid organizations such as ours.

Thirdway uses volunteers, interns, donors, and partners from all over the world to reach our goals! Please explore our website to see how you can get involved. More hands.....
