About US

CESCRA is a registered regional non-profit organization, founded in 2010 to contribute to the realization of Economic Social Cultural Rights (ESCRs) of marginalized communities and group of people especially women, girls and youth. The organization harmonizes the international and regional human rights laws with national reforms and strategies to address women’s lack of land, housing, inheritance and property rights, the problem of female and youth unemployment, improved working environment within the informal sector, decision making processes of marginalized communities and making their voices heard within the formulation of national polices.
