We are a Paris-based international human rights NGO that works to promote the advancement and protection of human rights and peacebuilding by working with local partner organisations.

We are a Paris-based international human rights NGO with a Section in Cameroon that works to promote the advancement and protection of human rights in Africa by working with local partner organisations in Burundi and Cameroon. We look to work with these organisations and their communities to help promote the respect, protection and fulfillment of international human rights protection without any negative or adverse distinction based on race, ethnicity, social standing, economic background, gender, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, nationality, age, physical mobility, political affiliation, religious affiliation or any other grounds prohibited by international human rights law. Our current projects focus on the continued development a Monitoring and Development Consortium for treatment in detention support in Burundi and setting up a law clinic in the city of Buea in the Southwest region of Cameroon. More details on our projects can be accessed on the projects tab on our website. We thank you for taking the opportunity to view our projects and learn a bit more about what we do. We also politely encourage you to become a member of our organisation and help us promote human rights protections in Burundi and Cameroon.

Always so impressed with our colleagues at SODEI!

Civil engagement and action goes along way in creating sustainable communities. This involves everyone playing specific roles to attain the required positive social change. In this light, the beneficiaries of the LESPLAY program were given lessons on how to serve and be active in their various communities in their own little way thereby making a difference.
