About Us

Human Rights & Justice Group International (Justice Group) registered in Nigeria as "Human Rights Development International" is an independent, non-governmental and not-for-profit established to enhance knowledge, respect and observance of human rights, and to encourage exchange of information and experiences for the betterment of the citizenry through the instrumentality of law, education, enlightenment and humanitarianism. Justice Group membership is drawn from a rich blend of activists and other professionals working together on a shared commitment to justice, the rule of law and human dignity.

We work with communities and groups that cut across gender, literacy, age and social lines, and use focused group project pilots to measure the impact our interventions are making in target communities.

Our mission is to support NGOs, CBOs, and other grassroots organisations in Nigeria by building their capacity which among others include:

  • Fostering local, regional and national cooperation in the NGO sector towards sustainable development through knowledge building and strategic action;
  • Encouraging information exchange among various NGOs with same aims, objective and philosophy;
  • Working to promote human rights, access to justice and development by building partnership between NGOs, CBOs, and the general public to secure a quality life of human dignity.
