A fundamental goal of the APF is to support the establishment of independent national human rights institutions (NHRIs) in the region and to strengthen members to implement their mandate to promote and protect human rights. We also bring our members together, and build partnerships with others, in order to tackle some of the most serious and complex human rights challenges facing our region.

To contribute to this goal, the APF has established a capacity development strategy which includes approaches such as facilitated and self-facilitated learning courses, networking, mentoring, and coaching and the provision of online spaces for NHRI-to-NHRI collaboration.  Last year, the APF developed the APF Community, a platform to deliver this strategy that integrates a learning section, a community space and a resource library. EdApp is the technology behind the learning space, and through this, the APF has been able to create learning courses designed to be completed on mobile devices in formats best suited to adult learners.

To continue to offer members opportunities to learn in the APF Community, the APF is seeking a consult to author online learning courses through EdApp for upcoming capacity development courses.
