Promoting Peace and Human Rights: Spotlight on a Partner
ASODECOM, Action Solidaire pour le Développement Communautaire in Burundi
A significant part of our work at Contra Nocendi International is done in collaboration with partners on the ground. One such organisation is ASODECOM, Action Solidaire pour le Développement Communautaire, in Burundi. ASODECOM is a civil society organisation in that engages in human rights, peacebuilding, and development activities through capacity building and advocacy.
The multifaceted approach taken by ASODECOM supports local communities and has developed a level of expertise that we at Contra Nocendi International hold in high regard. Additionally, ASODECOM has special consultative status with UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and has developed a strong reputation for engaging in its work in an objective and apolitical manner.
ASODECOM and human rights and development programming
A large part of ASODECOM’s programming is not focused directly on human rights promotion and observation, but rather on deploying effective development programs to provide support and opportunity for local communities.
ASODECOM has conducted workshops on human rights promotion to help expand awareness international law and Burundian domestic law. They also actively participate in dialogue relating to human rights challenges and promotion as well as participate in local platforms in order to advocate for protections.
