This was stated by Executive Director, FRHD, Nazra Jehan, in an interview, it said.
The vision of the FRHD is to have a society where writ of law would have prime consideration and justice would be delivered on the basis of equality and impartiality; where rights of individual are respected, protected, and promoted.
The FRHD would be focussing on the areas of human rights, health, education, poverty alleviation and development, and climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction.
The strategies of the FRHD include mobilisation of active agents either children or adults, men and women for achieving the desired vision, goals and objectives; formation of district or community level groups/ committees, but the main emphasis would be on youth and women; conducting brief scientific and empirical researches by involving academics and others so that these can contribute in policy formulation.
The main objectives of the FRHD include working for the welfare of disadvantaged people especially poor, to endeavour to provide moral and financial help to the unprivileged class particularly orphans, widows, children, juveniles and disable persons, enabling them to support themselves financially and live a dignified life, to provide education and health facilities to the children and to highlight and address the issues and problems of women and children mainly women prisoners and juveniles.
