Welcome to Facilitate Global
The political, legal and economic health of every nation and community depends upon the strength of its social capital – its people. That’s why Facilitate Global seeks to make a difference at the individual and community level bringing about social and economic change, giving voice to the voiceless in the corridors of power and the world’s media, and enabling them to stand on their on feet economically.
We are a not for profit organisation, promoting peacebuiding, human rights and international humanitarian law with a special focus on economic regeneration and development. We put a human face on human rights. So wherever you are in the world, join us to create a new awareness, there is an alternative to the cycle of violence and despair which blights far too many lives in far too many places.
As stated in the Preamble of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, we believe that the UDHR must be at the very core of all fields of human endeavour so as to inform, govern, emphasise, promote and protect the primacy of human dignity and the Right To Life in the most intrinsic sense. It must therefore be seen to be fully evidenced in political, legal, economic, social and cultural terms.
Facilitate Global fully endorses the Preamble of the UDHR and associated Articles:
Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.
Whereas disregard and contempt for human rights have resulted in barbarous acts which have outraged the conscience of mankind, and the advent of a world in which human beings shall enjoy freedom of speech and belief and freedom from fear and want has been proclaimed as the highest aspiration of the common people,
Whereas it is essential, if man is not to be compelled to have recourse, as a last resort, to rebellion against tyranny and oppression, that human rights should be protected by the rule of law,
Whereas it is essential to promote the development of friendly relations between nations,
Whereas the peoples of the United Nations have in the Charter reaffirmed their faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person and in the equal rights of men and women and have determined to promote social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom,
Whereas Member States have pledged themselves to achieve, in co-operation with the United Nations, the promotion of universal respect for and observance of human rights and fundamental freedoms,
Whereas a common understanding of these rights and freedoms is of the greatest importance for the full realization of this pledge,
Now, Therefore THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY proclaims THIS UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS as a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations, to the end that every individual and every organ of society, keeping this Declaration constantly in mind, shall strive by teaching and education to promote respect for these rights and freedoms and by progressive measures, national and international, to secure their universal and effective recognition and observance, both among the peoples of Member States themselves and among the peoples of territories under their jurisdiction
