Australasian Centre for Human Rights and Health is an NGO, a think tank that proposes innovative solutions. ACHRH believes there is no higher form of contact with humans than art. At ACHRH we use art to find community based solutions; art in service of human rights and human problems in the Australasian region.
ACHRH is a think tank made up of a group of socially minded people. We operate on the underlying assumption that when individuals come together to take action towards attaining social change empowerment will result. ACHRH aims towards empowerment of individual women, of children and collectively of families and therefore of the community.
Our Biggest Achievement
Today we are very proud of our NGO the Australasian Centre for Human Rights and Health. We have received Victorian Government’s Multicultral Award of Excellence in the area of INNOVATION . The project we submitted was our “Mutual Cultural Respect” or MCR is a highly innovative and interactive program which facilitates the sharing of mutual cultural and Australian societal/cultural values amongst people. It is a very enjoyable process with much learning and fun. The program has been designed for both new and old migrants. It focuses on important issues relating to gender sensitisation.
Many thanks to all the participants and volunteers for your support from the BOARD OF ACHRH.
In a short 4 years of our existence ACHRH has achieved many notabale goals for example started an anti-dowry Petition which brought dowry related domestic violence to the Nations attention; And then it was fully accepted by the Royal Commission into Family Violence and laws are being formulated to see how to make dowry taking an offence within the Act of Family Violence Protection in Victoria within 12 months.
The Royal Commission and the successive Victorian Governments have supported and listened to our pleas on behalf of hundreds of voiceless women. Our petition was tabled in the Victorian Parliament 3 times with new sets of signatures and now it is LAW.
We lend our heartful gratitude for supporting the transformation of our anti-dowry petition into Law.
