About Us

GSHRDC is a not for profit, non-governmental organisation established in August 1995 with the aim of addressing a pressing need for a place where information on women and human rights issues could be obtained as part of attempts to integrate women's concerns and perspectives into mainstream programmes, projects and policies addressing social and developmental issues.



Our mission is to create a knowledge base through research, advocacy, and allied activities on issues of critical importance to women. In turn, this will help to produce law and policy reform for the promotion and protection of women’s human rights and their full development.



The Gender Centre envisions a society where women’s rights are fully promoted and protected and one in which women are able to participate in national development at all levels.
