Empowering the next generation of development collaboration

Introduction

Human Rights & Science (HR&S) recognises researchers, innovators, and entrepreneurs in lower-income countries who present amazing social business ideas and supports them. Our main aim is to implement locally developed and locally adapted solutions.

We address the context of development stakeholders  with the purpose of facilitating an enabling environment. HR&S development programme management management seminars & workshops bring together actors addressing a positive deleloment from every country and continent with Sub-Sahara Africa as a target, for lectures and discussions with the aim of providing opportunities to bring positive change and development. We offer a transformational training package designed to inspire stakeholders to become innovative change-makers. Development practitioners develop creative capacity and acquire necessary skills to do manage development programmes that are sustainable have have evidence based impact.

Structure of the training

HR&S trainings are stuctured around evaluation planning. Evaluation planning describes how we monitor and evaluate the way we address our activites, as well as how we intend to use evaluation results for activity improvement and decision making.  HR&S benefits from our own “Real-time Outcome Planning & Evaluation” tool (ROPE) and the training sessions are structured around the ROPE Strategy for Change template. It is obvious from the above that ROPE is an iterative process and that the Strategy for Change is continiously revised, as a result of lessons learned. 

The set-up is two-fold; each practitioner’s  own career and workplan ambitions combined with the  ambitions of the management of the institution where the practitioner work.

HR&S trainings are instructor led and delivered by using a blended learning approach. It combines presentations, guided sessions of practical exercise, group work and home work. Our facilitators are seasoned experts with years of experience, working as professionals and trainers in these fields.
