What Is The Reseau National de Defense des Droits Humains(RNDDH)?

The Reseau National de Defense des Droits Humains (RNDDH) is a non-governmental organization aiming to promote the protection of human rights in Haiti. It spearheads programs that are meant to educate Haitians on their rights, as well as monitor human rights violations. The organization also sets its eyes on key institutions in the country to ensure that they are fulfilling their obligation to protect people's human rights and their welfare.


The RNDDH is composed of two groups - the headquarters team in Port-au-Prince and the network of volunteers and departmental teams. The headquarters have 12 working teams that have their own purpose and responsibilities. This system allows the entire organization to work smoothly, as all working committees share their knowledge, advice, and experience with one another.

When it comes to mission and vision, the RNDDH is committed to establishing a solid basis and foundation for democracy and human rights in the country. In order to achieve its goals, it partners with other institutions and organization to meet the country's need for social, political and cultural changes. Since its formation in 1995, the RNDDH has been implementing programs that will help promote fundamental human rights, which it believes has been denied to Haitians during a military dictatorship. One of its initiatives is called the Human Rights Training for Community Based Organizations. This program educates and informs community organizations about human rights. Lessons and training on civic and political rights are taught under the program.

Earlier, the RNDDH made a report on the current human rights situation in Haiti. The report highlights the high rate of human rights violations perpetuated by various groups, which include supporters of former President Jean Bertrand Aristide and former soldiers.
