  2. "Latvian Alliance of Rare Diseases", project “Health - our human rights” (grant awarded 104561,41 eiro). The aim of the project is to increase society’s understanding that health is an important aspect of human rights, to ensure people with rare diseases with an equal accessibility to healthcare and social services, to reduce the stigma on the target group, to increase healthcare providers’ awareness of patient rights and needs of patients with rare diseases.
  3. Apeirons Organization of people with disabilities and their friends, project “Universal Design for Human Rights” (grant awarded 103089,91 eiro). The aim of the project is to increase the capacity of people with different disabilities to exercise their rights and protection, including ensuring that the rights provider - employees of the justice system have knowledge and understanding of working with people with different disabilities.
  4. “I want to help refugees” project “Human rights for all” (grant awarded 104984,8 eiro). The aim of the project is to enhance the rights of the beneficiaries of international protection and raise awareness of human rights in the Latvian society.

There are still a lot of challenges regarding human rights and tolerance in Latvia, however there are not many organisations working with these issues at strategic level, which is largely due to the fact that the non-governmental sector in Latvia is poorly supported for long-term development as a whole. At the same time, looking back at all three ACF strategic project calls in the field of human rights, we see that there is still room for growth as well as for strengthening awareness and diversity of approaches in the field of human rights. Although this was the last strategic project call in this period, in the next two years the ACF will try to help the organisations of this area to develop themselves within ACF regional and bilateral cooperation programmes, for example by offering exchanges and learning opportunities in donor countries or other ACF countries in Europe." – summarizing results of the call, comments Kristīne Zonberga, the chair of the Board of the Active Citizens Fund

More detailed information on approved projects will be published in the section “Approved projects” of the ACF website after the conclusion of the financing agreements.
