LDHR is aware of culturally-imposed stigma and taboos, specifically regarding sexual violence against adults and children. Therefore, it is designing and developing curricula to train first responders with complete understanding of the cultural context.
LDHR aims to augment the number of first responders. This will play a crucial role in not only broaching the victims, ensuring confidentiality, assisting them through the documentation process, but also in raising awareness in the community about HR issues and the importance of speaking up when an atrocity has occurred.
It is our role as well as the role of active civil society members to promote understanding of the plight of the brutal psychological morbidity on the survivor, and dampen the deep impact of the trauma survivor’s experience.
Based on the data we have collected and what has been published by other bodies working in the same field, we disseminate human rights principles within the community and design and publish public reports regarding human rights issues.
