What We Do
- HUMAN RIGHTS PROTECTION
A Society where there is absence of justice and fair play can never experience true development and progress. That is the why at HURSDEF we champion the crusade for the protection and respect of the rights of the people irrespective of class, creed, age, sex, tribe and race.
- CHILD RIGHTS PROTECTION AND PROMOTION
Millions of children in the Niger Delta area in particular and Nigeria in general are subjected to violence, child labour, exploitation and abuse in our communities, schools and institutions; and to harmful practices such as female genital mutilation and child marriage. Millions more, not yet victims, also remain without adequate protection.
Protecting children from violence, exploitation, child labour, and abuse is an integral component of protecting their rights to survival, growth and development. We at HURSDEF insist that the rights and privileges of the child as enshrined in the Nigeria constitution and United Nation Organisation child rights act is respected.
- ENVIRONMENTAL RIGHTS
Human Rights Social Development and Environmental Foundation is committed to the promotion and protection of clean, green and healthy environment that is why we dig deep into the activities of various firms and industries as it relates to the environment and promptly highlight and tackle their infringement.
HURSDEF also advocates and supports the creation of a protective environment for children in partnership with governments, national and international partners including the private sector, and civil society.
