Job Description

About the organisation

A local human rights organisation that promotes and protects human rights in Zimbabwe.


While the Declaration of Rights in the Constitution of Zimbabwe sets out rights which every person is entitled to, citizens suffer systematic violations of human rights, impunity and disregard of the rule of law. The systematic violations of human rights and resultant impunity are a result of a citizenry that is ill equipped to deal with such abuse due to lack of knowledge and capacity to hold perpetrators accountable. In the fight against impunity, it is therefore important to create awareness of human rights in Zimbabwe. Once communities are empowered with knowledge, they can assert their rights without fear of victimization. It is on this background and upon realization of the importance of human rights awareness that the organisation is seeking the services of a consultant to develop animated videos to boost this awareness campaign.

Objectives of the animated videos

The main objectives of the animated videos are to:

  • To empower citizens through legal education on their rights so that they assert these without fear of victimization;
