Results and Stories of change

Diakonia's strategy for change and a rights based approach is highly conducive to socially sustainable development as it recognises the discriminated individuals or groups and victims of violations as right holders.
By putting focus on empowering people to demand what is rightfully theirs and on the duty bearers’ obligation to grant the rights, the approach not only provides the legal framework and tools to pursue change. It also empowers the rights holders to be the protagonists of the change and to be owners of this process.
