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.
