• Introduction

    For SMC, the human rights-based approach is a cornerstone in all the work we undertake. The human rights-based approach in development revolves around core principles of dignity, equality, and justice. It upholds universal rights, ensuring non-discrimination and equal access.  Actively involving communities empowers them in decision-making processes. 

    It addresses inequalities, breaks down systemic barriers, monitors impact for accountability, draws on international instruments for a legal framework, and relies on collaboration with stakeholders for sustainable impact. In the end, it's all about imagining a world where everyone's rights are honored, safeguarded, and met, paving the way for fair development for all.
