HUMANIST WATCH SALONE.

- STRENGTENING HUMAN RIGHTS AND DEVELOPMENT IN SIERRA LEONE.

 

The Humanist Watch Salone is working to strive towards the enhancement of sustainable peace and development in Sierra Leone through active participation and inclusion of marginalized populace such as women, children, youth, physically challenged and people living with HIV/AIDS in the society.

 

We work with local communities through the participatory rural appraisal (PRA) by assisting them identify and utilize local solutions to their challenges in the post -war period of reconstruction and development.

 

While working in highly devastated war affected rural communities, we are designing and implementing community-demand driven programmes through right based approach, geared towards community reintegration and empowerment in the Kailahun, and Kenema Districts.

Our target groups are women, youth, children and physically challenged persons as well as those living with HIV and AIDS. These serving groups of HUWASAL are predominantly faced with marginalization due to existing cultural beliefs and attitudes that undermine their social, economic and political status. The social marginalization of the target groups served is link to their vulnerability as it emphasizes their dependency.
