CHRAJ ENGAGES LEADERS OF FAITH-BASED ORGANISATIONS ON CORRUPTION
The Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) will continue its nationwide engagement with leaders of faith-based organisations in the Western region in a bid to increase public awareness on the scourge of corruption in order to improve the quality of public ethics and morality in the country.
Under the theme; ‘Building Broad Coalition for Combating Corruption and Enhancing Integrity in Ghana,’ the programme is envisaged to empower citizens as well as build the capacity of the public to resist, report, and hold public officers accountable for acts of corruption.
This activity, therefore, seeks to introduce the National Anti-Corruption Action Plan (NACAP) to participants with a view to discussing the role of faith-based organisations in its implementation. Also, it will serve as an avenue to forge strategic partnership with faith-based organisations to vigorously tackle corruption and enhance integrity of members and the general public.
CHRAJ TO SENSITISE JOURNALISTS ON HUMAN RIGHTS
As part of its efforts to promote and protect fundamental human rights and freedoms in Ghana, the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) will be undertaking a nationwide media sensitisation programme to assist journalists to develop the passion to report on human rights issues.
The Commission will kick-start this campaign on August 19, 2014, and will involve news editors and news reporters from the Western region. This initiative is designed to enlist the support of journalists to report frequently on human rights issues in order to promote and protect the rights of the vulnerable in the communities.
The programme will also involve Commissioners and other senior officers of the Commission in the respective regions, with a view to deepening the relationship between these officers and the journalists for effective collaboration in championing the cause of human rights.
