What We Do
The CeHII is a humanitarian organization whose main mandate is to provide assistance to those in need. We also undertake specific direct interventions where necessary.
Our main thematic areas of work continue to be rights based; right to food, shelter, water, education, security, protection of - and equality before - the law, quality and affordable healthcare, knowledge acquisition and freedom from arbitrary arrest, torture and harassment.
The CeHII puts a lot of premium in enabling local communities to acquire skills to prioritize their needs and organize themselves to demand until they get their rights. Towards this end, CeHII has developed several specific programmes each of which is coordinated by a Program Officer and relevant staff.
