EKO HOT BLOG reports that a non-profit international organization, The Right Empowerment And Inclusion Initiative, THEREIIN, based in Lagos has launched a human rights initiative on the rights of vulnerable groups and women.
The president and founder of the organisation, Mr John Chukwu disclosed that THEREIIN is in cooperation with some international bodies and groups which have been a strong support system to the laudable initiative.
According to the founder, the initiative will seek to address the issue of poverty eradication, creative research, social injustices, promotion and protection of human rights of the less privileged.
Expressing enthusiasm, Mr Chukwu said, “I’ve experienced a lot growing up as a child, and that has motivated me to get devoted to supporting humanity, and here we are today launching the initiative of the inclusion of the vulnerable and the poor, and so far it has been a success.
“The name, ‘The Right Empowerment And Inclusion Initiative’ is a name extracted from the programme itself. There are lots of millions and thousands out there that are left behind, not knowing their rights, not being included, being exempted from the society, rejected and neglected, and from this, we were able to extract the name to make people have a sense of belonging, comfort and help them fight for their deprived rights.
“We’ve been into this for so long, we’ve been reaching out to thousands of people from the diaspora, and over time we decide to make it official and show ourselves to the world, and to establish the name on the purpose of which the initiative was found.
Describing the organisation’s area of operation, Mr Chukwu said the initiatives are divided into three: access to justice, empowerment and creative research.
“This organisation’s core area is divided into 3 parts, first, is the access to justice, access to social economic, public interest litigation and fight for the neglected through advocacy and legal agencies.
“Secondly, is Empowerment, formal and informal i.e the back to school campaign, skill acquisition and lots more.
“Third is the Creative Research, make in-depth research to know the cause of some gender violence, Rampant Ritual killings trends, social menace, social exclusion and lots more, we then put all these scripts together as a documentary.
“With lots of supporters, donors, partners and volunteers I’m certain that THEREIIN would grow stronger and as well serve its purpose. This initiative has come to stay, and we as well intend to reach out to grassroots communities where this initiative is needed the most,” he said.
Mr Chukwu further thanked those who have been supporting the organisation in one way or the other and those who took out time to be part of the initiative’s success story.
