aBout Malawi Human rights resource centre
The Malawi Human Rights Resource Centre (MHRRC) is a local Non- Governmental, not for profit organization registered under the Trustees Incorporation Act and administered by a Board of Trustees. We were established in September 1997 with the overall objective of promoting and strengthening the culture of human rights in Malawi. We work with civil society organizations to effectively support the developing democracy which was adopted in Malawi in 1993. We contribute towards the consolidation of channels of free expression and other rights for the citizens by working with and building the capacity of CSOs working in the area of human rights. This is being done against a background and realization that prior to 1993, the year the country embraced multiparty democracy, NGOs and CSOs promoting human rights never existed and freedom of expression and other rights were severely curtailed.
