APDH is a community-based organisation working to promote peace and human rights, through education and capacity building. It uses communities' structures (e.g., women and youth organisations and power structures) as entry-points for lasting social change. As far as the land domain is concerned, APDH is well-known for its contributions towards realising more equitable land tenure systems. It has a particular interest in strengthening and securing people’s land rights, especially women’s and children’s and of other vulnerable peoples.
APDH’s vision is to create a positive transformation of society aiming for justice, peace and reconciliation towards lasting and integral development.
APDH's objectives include the promotion and defence human rights, according to the Universal Declaration of Human rights and other national, regional and/or international human rights protocols, the fight against human rights abuses, and the sensitizing of youth to pacific conflict resolution and reconciliation.
The constituencies of APDH's actions include vulnerable groups, the youth, and the public administration.
