Who we Are?

Human Rights Research and Advocacy Consortium (HRRAC) is a national non-governmental organization that is working in the field of human rights including child rights and women rights, peace building as well as environment, climate change and equitable development. HRRAC's member organizations are bringing a wealth of experience to the organization and helping with all advocacy initiatives that are conducted by the organization at the different levels. HRRAC was formed in early 2003 to engage in proactive research and advocacy on human rights in Afghanistan. At the beginning it was jointly funded by USIP (United States Institute for Peace) and Consortium members. Later it was funded by Oxfam NOVIB with contributions by Consortium members. HRRAC at the beginning was a project of Care International. In March 2007 the project went through some organizational changes and became an independent organization registered with the Ministry of Economy of Afghanistan. HRRAC carries out research and proactive advocacy activities on human rights in Afghanistan. The consortium focuses on the rights of all Afghans to peace and physical security, their rights to participate politically, their rights to share in economic resources and development. This themes have reflected by HRRAC’s work on a number of studies conducted/ published on child education, civic education, disarmament, governance, women rights and security issues proposes to develop community based research, advocacy and promotion of the basic rights of Afghans.. HRRAC is the first Afghan-led research organization, and remains the only woman-run organization of its kind in Afghanistan. Its widely-cited reports have informed advocacy and policy-making at domestic and international levels on issues such as disarmament, education, and free elections. HRRAC carries out field research in provinces in Afghanistan’s northern, western, central, eastern, and, when security permits, southern, regions. It focuses on national and so is its reach. HRRAC believes that reaching communities outside major population centers and raising the voices of Afghanistan’s majority rural population is critical to good research and human rights work. HRRAC is a unique platform that brings together national and international organizations committed to advocating with and on behalf of Afghans for the protection and respect of human rights in Afghanistan.
