CLEEN Foundation Bags 2019 Human Rights Awards
CLEEN Foundation winning the 2019
Human Rights Award can be described as ending the year with a bang.
After being nominated for the award
with some very high profile Civil Society Organizations, CLEEN Foundation
walked away with the 2019 Human Rights Awards on the 8th of December
2019. This came as a great motivation to the work we do after the vote and
decision was made by the general public.
Winning this award has equally put us on a spot light but we are not deterred as we have always been determined to fight for the rights of the people.
The Foundation have been working on a lot of project that addresses the right of the people as citizens of Nigeria and ensuring that bodies or agencies set up to defend and protect the people do not end up abusing them. One of such project is the Civil Military Relations Project that is ensuring a cordial relationship between the military and the civilians. Under this project the Foundation have been able the set up the Human Rights Desk of the Nigerian Army where citizens can report cases of abuse by a personnel.
