A vital aspect of the Toolkit Organisers network is sharing knowledge between HRDs. This week, Junia shared best practices on effective campaigning as an advocacy strategy and supported the team in practically creating a vision and problem identification.

In 2022, Junia attended a Fellowship for human rights defenders at Dundee University. He worked on well-being and expanded his networks and knowledge of best practices in advocacy. Upon his return, he shared his experiences with the Toolkit Organisers in the session.


Sakwa, WHRD toolkit organizer from Mathare engaged the Toolkit Organizers network in a session to strengthen capacities for analysing risks for human rights defenders. The changing environment for WHRDs means conducting regular risk assessments is essential. Sakwa emphasized the need to strengthen capacities and reduce vulnerabilities in order to minimise risks.
