ESE develops and assists the women’s and civic leadership for development and implementation of human rights and social justice in our society.
ESE is driven by its dedication towards solution of problems. By promoting and improving the human rights, we improve the social and economic justice, thus considering that human rights are an indivisible set of standards to be enjoyed by everyone. We are especially dedicated to the work in the area of promotion and improvement of health and women’s human rights. Therefore, we focus on two objectives – meet the urgent needs of citizens, in particular the vulnerable groups of citizens, and influence the creation of sustainable, long-termed changes. We do more than mere documentation, reporting and condemning the inflicted injustice. We provide legal and paralegal assistance, and this is how we enable the citizens to realize their rights and change their living conditions. Moreover, we advocate for changing the legislation and policies that influence the implementation of health and women’s human rights. We advocate both on national and international level. We prepare and submit “shadow reports” and other types of documents for implementation of international documents about human rights in front of responsible international bodies.
