The Foundation for Human Rights (the Foundation) is a grant-making institution supporting civil society organisations in South Africa and the region that implement programmes which promote and protect human rights.  The Foundation’s mission is to address the historical legacy of apartheid, to promote and advance transformation in our country and to build a human rights culture using the Constitution as a tool.

In partnership with the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development (DoJ&CD), the Foundation has implemented a human rights programme titled: ”Access to Justice and Promotion of Constitutional Rights (Strengthening Civil Society)" (AJPCR), the third since its establishment in 1996.

The AJPCR programme is aimed at vulnerable and marginalized groups, and is funded through the Budget Sector Support by the European Union to the DoJ&CD, with the Foundation as the implementing agency.  Its overall aim is to contribute to the promotion, protection and realisation of rights established in the Constitution through three key objectives:

  • Improve access to justice;
  • Raise awareness of constitutional rights; and
  • Strengthen democracy through partnerships with civil society.

The FHR, as part of its AJPCR programme activities, is embarking on a comprehensive communications and re-branding strategy to raise awareness and increase visibility of the work it is doing through civil society among all its target audiences, as well as raise the profile of FHR by improving its visual impact.
The aim is to revitalise the design of all the materials and outputs produced by the FHR, and expand the channels for communicating its message, including the website. The intended outcome is greater cohesion between all the parts, a stronger organizational identity, and a more dynamic visual representation of what the Foundation stands for, and the work that it supports. A further goal is that the materials produced or developed have greater impact and efficacy in reaching vulnerable target groups.
Service providers proficient in design, web design, or those with expertise in web development and maintenance are invited to respond to this call.  These areas of proficiency are separated by section, so it is not expected that service providers will have expertise in all three.

A detailed terms of reference and guidelines for submitting an expression of interest for this call are available on the FHR website
