One of the main functions of the APF is to support NHRIs to be stronger and more effective institutions in the region through capacity development programmes. To do this, the APF develops training packages, resource materials that are readily available to our members and conducts blended learning activities.

The APF is therefore looking to develop a capacity development activity on Human Rights Education and Communications which will include a training course, development of resources and an accompanying Community of Practice for participants to learn and collaborate with one another. This course will first be piloted in the Pacific region, then launched to the broader APF membership.

The APF is seeking expertise in development of the capacity development programme on Human Rights Education (HRE) including facilitation practice for human rights education and designing and delivery of a training course on HRE and Communication.
