The general objective is to provide support, protection and capacity building to civil society activists and organizations working in the promotion of human rights and good governance.

This will be measured by the achievement of three primary results:

  • The abolition of the death penalty.
  • The effective protection of activists, organisations, and vulnerable minority groups.
  • Increased compliance with the millennium development commitments and human rights.

An improvement in human rights and governance in the country will come through the protection of activists, women and LGBTQI+ members, as well as the strengthening of civil society in both areas. A stronger civil society can hold the government accountable and push for reforms.

The Legal Aid Service, or Legal Clinic, is an initiative that is part of the project APROFORT

The main objective of the APROFORT Observatory is to help monitor compliance with commitments assumed by the Equatorial Guinea government

APROFORT will establish coalitions with Human Rights organisations and in other Portuguese-speaking countries, as well as organisations from Equatorial Guinea, to achieve this long-awaited commitment

APROFORT sub-grants are awarded in form of financial support directed to the implementation activities and initiatives that converge with APROFORT’s main expected results
