Our mission

If you have read ِ"About Me" very well, you will know that my first mission is to spread human rights not only in the Arab world but also internationally, at a time when human rights are almost non-existent in many countries.

My mission is to train volunteers and specialists on how to publish human rights provisions and laws to protect human resources and exploit them for the public good, also raise awareness in societies that may lack true concepts of their rights as a human being, and this is what I have been working on through my travel around several countries in the worldwide so that peace and safety prevail in the world. because each one has to live with dignity.

Our goals that we aim to achieve

As mentioned above, our main goal is to teach the knowledge in all fields of human rights to everyone, not only on a regional international level but at a comprehensive global international level, to spread awareness that may be able to preserve the rights of children, women, the disabled and the elderly.
