Together we can
Who we are
Human Rights and Development Organization (HUDO) is an independent, non-government, non-partisan and non-profit Sudanese organization dedicated to the promotion and protection of human rights, peace building and development. It was established and confined to South Kordufan state in Sudan, registered under the State Humanitarian Joint Commission (HAC/SRRC) on 25th Oct 2009 and officially recognized as an NGO (last renew on 13 Feb 2011…the regulation to be renewed yearly and it validity being one year). In June 2011 when South Kordufan conflict started, HUDO’s certificate was revoked by the Sudanese government. However, HUDO continued to work under very tight and threatening conditions. In order to fulfill its mission, HUDO office had been moved and officially registered in Uganda on 13th March 2013 as nonprofit company registered by guarantee and in South Sudan on 3rd April 2014 as NGO under the same name of HUDO centre. Nevertheless, the mandate has been extended to cover the entire Sudan and Sudanese refugees in Uganda, South Sudan and special program for other refugees. HUDO Centre is highly committed to achieving sustainable development, promoting human welfare without racial, religious, gender discrimination or political affiliation.
HUDO Centre is a rights-based organization which has a two-fold programming approach, comprising of both practical interventions as its ‘hardware' component and the human rights dimension as an integral ‘software' component, under which all its projects are designed and implemented. While the practical interventions are tackling the consequences of a specific problem (whether development, recovery, or relief), the rights-based approach is more focused on addressing the root causes, together with the intervening and proximate factors. The activities related to human rights include aspects of protection, peace-building, psycho- social activities, raising awareness, empowerment and organizing people to share with their contribution and advocacy to positively influence the human rights situation.

To bring human rights to life by producing and shaping human rights tools, raising awareness and enforcing practices that empower people to improve their own lives and the lives of others. Act as a voice for the rights of those who face discrimination on the grounds of gender, ethnicity, religion or beliefs.
