Centre for Human Rights & Governance was founded in 2002 during the height of the wars that raged in the eastern region of DR Congo. The desire to start this organization has been heaped by far the greatest human rights violation, suffering on the civilian populations caught in the crosshairs, deprivation, and displacement. It was established during the continued countrywide abuses which violate the spirit, intent, and articles of UDHR, and many other conventions, the documents ever ratified by the community of nations.
Since 2002, this organization has been deeply involved in various programs of human rights peace and governance, all aimed at creating a peaceful atmosphere for effective stability. Human rights has been one major area that CHRG has championed over the years to date and now is currently championing the course of peacemaking, conflict transformation, and governance.
