SOS Exclusion was established in 2000 to tackle what it saw as the institutionalisation of impunity, reflected in the numerous violations of human rights, ethnic excesses and the decline of democracy under the military junta in Côte d'Ivoire. The organisation works for the defence and promotion of human rights, democracy and gender.
SOS Exclusion aspires to a just and egalitarian society respecting human dignity. To achieve this, the it conducts activities such as:
- Education of the population, including youth and women through training seminars, awareness-raising campaigns and public lectures;
- Investigation, denunciation and declaration of human rights violations;
- Assistance to victims of human rights violations.
