Amnesty International Portugal
The project of Human Rights Platform is part of Outcome 4 – Enhanced capacity and sustainability of civil society – Active Citizens Funds promoted by Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian.
This project emerged from the need to solve some of the contemporary challenges that civil society organizations working in the human rights domain are facing in Portugal.
Some of these challenges are the difficulty in establishing work synergies with other organizations, difficulty with sustainability, difficulty in accessing funds in a diverse and consolidate manner, difficulty in ‘making their voice heard’ within the saturated ecosystem in which they operate, among others.
In this context, the Consortium, composed by Amnesty International Portugal – promoter, ACTUAR – Associação para a Cooperação e o Desenvolvimento, AKTO – Direitos Humanos e Democracia, APF – Associação para o Planeamento da Familia, APMJ – Associação Portuguesa de Mulheres Juristas, FENACERCI – Federação Nacional de Cooperativas de Solidariedade Social, ILGA Portugal – Intervenção Lesbica, Gay, Bissexual, Trans e Intersexo and IGC – Ius Gentium Conimbrigae – partners, suggests the creation of one platform that can aggregate a diversity of organizations, considering both thematic and geographic scopes, working in human rights domain in Portugal.
The aim of the platform is to become an umbrella organization that can create work and implementation synergies among the organizations, potentiating real impact on human rights but not substituting any existing organizations.
Thus, the project is formed by four components interconnected aimed at defining the limits of the action, creation and revision of the workplan (Component 1), consolidate the platform (Component 2), creation and validation of a business and sustainability plan (Component 3) and reporting and transition to autonomy (Component 4). The project has a duration of 36 months and started on 1st September 2020.
