Social attitude and cultural norms are one of the major contributors towards the dearth of basic rights throughout the region. R:Ed’s aim is to promote African values that have a positive effect on society; challenging traditions that directly contribute to the stunted development of Human Rights.

“Their rights are being left aside. Children are God’s gift, tomorrow’s future. We should love them no matter if they’re not from our womb. They deserve equal treatments.”
“Toujours les mêmes larmes qui mouillent les jeux des enfants Africain en particulier.”
“Really human rights is the first thing to observe in a community as for us in Africa human rights are violated, especially the rights of the poor. I think Africa should take huge presses on this.”
