Registered in Zimbabwe on 30th August 2007, ROHR Zimbabwe was formed by a group of Zimbabweans in Zimbabwe and the UK for purposes of promoting a culture of human rights through community mobilization, capacity building and active responses to human rights violations. The organization works tirelessly to achieve its founding aims and objectives to build a culture of respecting human rights.
ROHR’s mission statement, among others, is to promote and protect justice, and human rights in Zimbabwe. It also seeks to provide a platform through which civil society engages with each other and with state institutions to debate on issues relating to human rights and justice. In doing so, ROHR Zimbabwe intends to popularize the need for justice and human rights at all times in Zimbabwe.
It seeks to encourage and advocate for the highest standards of human rights and justice among Zimbabweans through conducting conferences, workshops, seminars, study programmes, research, educational campaigns and such other publicity campaigns and activities aimed at promoting justice and human rights among Zimbabweans. The organization has established ties with the media to ensure publicity campaigns to broaden public awareness of human rights and justice in the country, and to advocate against human rights abuses. It also campaigns against impunity for those who violate human rights, and encourages participation by members of the public in governance issues including their constitutional rights.
ROHR Zimbabwe networks with other civic organizations that share the same objectives and values nationally, regionally and internationally. In addition, the organization does any or all such other things which are incidental or conducive to the attainment of the aims and objectives of the Restoration Of Human Rights. Membership to ROHR Zimbabwe is open to anyone who subscribes to the aims and objectives of the organization, whether they are individuals, Corporates, solidarity partners, supporters, or honorary members appointed by the trustee or donors.
