Advancing Rights in Southern Africa (ARISA)

Country: South Africa
Funder: USAID

Every single person has the right to be free from discrimination and attack, and to recourse if their rights are violated. But this remains a dream for many people and communities. The Advancing Rights in Southern Africa project, or ARISA, promotes and protects human rights, especially the rights of the most vulnerable people. ARISA aims to improve recognition, awareness and enforcement of human rights across the Southern African Development Community region. Implemented by a consortium of four organizations including Pact, ARISA is working to create an enabling environment for the promotion and protection of human rights, and to strengthen the capacity and engagement of regional and local civil society actors to seek redress for rights violations.

Government Capacity Development Support

Funder: USAID

Pact is helping to build the capacity of South Africa's Department of Social Development to better support orphans and vulnerable children, including those affected by abuse, neglect or exploitation. Specifically, the project is strengthening the department's response to tuberculosis, HIV and other diseases among vulnerable children.
