GlobalRights is a non-profit organization that challenges injustice and amplifies the voices of grassroots activists to promote, protect, and fulfill human rights. Hand in hand and side by side working with individuals and groups to:
- At the community level, build knowledge, skill and advocacy expertise for those with the greatest vulnerability and need for parity of opportunity for all
- Gain access to resources and decision making bodies
- Become participants in democratic life through an on-going continuum of education, skill development and feeling of vested interest to create social change.
On the 26th of March, 2018, the organization held an all day intense Media Awareness Training Workshop on Business and Human Rights Reporting after carefully selecting online and conventional media practitioners within Nigeria who are passionate about promoting the universal principles of human rights.
Article 12 of the Code of Ethics for Nigerian journalists commits media professionals to demonstrate “social responsibility” and requires that: “A journalist should promote universal principles of human rights, democracy, justice, equity, peace and international understanding”
At the end of the training, certificates were awarded to those who participated in the training by Global Rights Nigeria Country Director - Mrs Abiodun Baiyewu
