Today we launched the Platform of Human Rights Organisations in Malta (PHROM), one of our major projects for 2014/2015.
The Platform of Human Rights Organisations in Malta (PHROM) is Malta’s first and only national coalition of NGOs working in the area of human rights promotion. It is an autonomous, voluntary and not-for-profit platform registered as a voluntary organisation with the Malta Commissioner for Voluntary Organisations.
Its mission is to provide a national forum for human rights organisations in Malta to more effectively develop, promote and advocate for the values of human dignity and equality.
Being Malta’s first and only platform gathering all NGO’s working on human rights issues, it provides members with a strong and united voice on areas of concern, supporting a more effective impact on policy and decision-making.
It also provides capacity-building, particularly to grassroots and upcoming NGOs, on the advocacy tools and skills needed to undertake target-oriented human rights activities.
As a network, PHROM also facilitates international and regional networking, discussions, research and other common activities.
A national focal point for human rights organisations, one of PHROM’s main activities is the publication of Malta’s first ever truly comprehensive and inclusive Annual Human Rights Report.
NGO’s working in the human rights sector are encouraged to become members so as to strengthen their advocacy efforts and to achieve a unified voice for various human rights issues and raise awareness, understanding and commitment to human rights in all sectors.
Interested NGOs should visit PHROM’s website (under construction) to signup!
