Onwards and upwards

Well, we are making some steady progress with developing WHRIN and our capacity to carry out our much needed work. Some great news came in last week when we were informed that we had be given an our first ever award by UnLtd in recognition of the good work we have been doing and the great potential that we have as a social enterprise. So a big and massive THANK YOU to all at UnLtd for showing such faith in WHRIN’s work. Please see here for more details about UnLtd.

Also since our last blog post WHRIN has received it’s first bit of UK publicity in the Lancaster Guardian no less! Please click here to see it.

We have also issued our first press release in response to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights’ recent statement on the plight of albinos killed for their body parts in Tanzania. You can see coverage of the press release here

WHRIN board member – Louise Meincke – has been spreading the word about our work in the corridors of power at the UN in Geneva and we have received some encouraging feedback about our work from various people. As WHRIN grows and develops over the coming months we will be looking at how we can best support local groups around the world to better engage with the UN. Watch this space for more details!
