Fahamu has a vision of the world where people organise to emancipate themselves from all forms of oppression, recognise their social responsibilities, respect each other’s differences, and realise their full potential.
Fahamu supports the struggle for human rights and social justice in Africa by:
- Supporting social justice advocacy through the innovative use of information and communication technologies
- Stimulating debate, discussion and analysis
- Distributing news and information
- Developing training materials and running distance-learning courses
Fahamu focuses primarily on Africa, although we work with others to support the global movement for human rights and social justice.
The word Fahamu means ‘understanding’ or ‘consciousness’ in Kiswahili.
