Information:
The ISHR Gambia chapter in Bakoteh Layout was established in Banjul on the December 10, 1991 as activists and monitors of human rights violations and to ensure that the clauses of the 1948 UN Declaration of Human Rights are put into force.



The organisation's other functions are to provide aid to the families of political prisoners, sensitisation training for law enforcers, reports on prison conditions, campaign for law reform, organises lectures and workshops.

Vision:
The NGO's outlook is that African countries are duty bound to take necessary steps to increase the level of awareness of the people of Africa as a necessary means for their comprehension of their basic rights.

Furthermore, that African governments recognise that the rule of law, respect for human rights and democracy are pre-requisites for development and social stability. Finally, the necessity of building a network which will act to promote, protect and defend human rights.

Committees:
Translation
Welfare
Women
Youth

Structure:
The Gambian branch office of the International Society for Human Rights is organised into a number of main areas. These are as follows:

Documentation unit
Education and training program
Human rights procedures
Internship placement scheme on human rights
