The Foundation for Human Rights (the Foundation) is a grant-making institution. It supports civil society organisations in South Africa implementing programmes that promote and protect human rights. The Foundation's mission is to address the historical legacy of apartheid, to promote and advance transformation and to build a human rights culture, using the Constitution as a tool.
The Foundation, in partnership with the Government of Flanders has embarked on the “Participation and Development of Capabilities of Civil Society in realising Socio-Economic Rights in South Africa” (SERSA) Programme. The SERSA Programme is an extension of the Access to Justice and Promotion of Constitutional Rights Programme (AJPCR) with which it shares the objectives of improving access to justice, raising awareness of constitutional rights and participation of civil society.
The focus of the SERSA Programme is on the following specific sub-result areas:
- Land reform and land tenure
- Food security
- Socio-economic rights and job creation
- Small scale and subsistence farming
- Climate change
