On 17 September 2014, the Regional office of UHCHR West Africa opened its doors for the national and international community of workers in the field of human rights in West Africa. The aim of the day was to inform about the work of the UHCHR in the region and focus on how all stakeholders can work together on various issues. I was there to take photographs and shot a promotional video of the day and the work that the office is doing.
When it comes to human rights there's so much to be done in this region. Therefor, it was very inspiring to learn about the initiatives that are being taken, the determination amongst the organisations to improve the human rights of minority groups and to sense the hope for a future where all people have equal opportunities and the freedom to be and express who they are.
