This is done through capacity building, participation in policy reform, raising public awareness and facilitating access to human rights mechanisms.
It is high time that the vision of African Renaissance (embracing of an African identity that promotes the continent's political, economic and social renewal) envisioned by former presidents Thabo Mbeki and Nelson Mandela is emphasised and supported to creating a "welcoming society"
