The Center for Food and Adequate Living Rights (CEFROHT), is a human rights not-for-profit organization whose mission is to promote social justice in food, health, trade and investment systems, through the use of legal tools and social accountability approaches such as strategic litigation, Community empowerment, Legal and policy advocacy to advance the right to a standard of living adequate for health and well-being in Uganda and Africa.
Who we are
CEFROHT strategically engages in legal aspects impacting food, health and trade, through framing adequate food, nutrition, health and trade issues as constitutional claims and entitlements. CEFROHT runs a justice Centre which offers both strategic and pro-bono legal services to vulnerable persons who suffer violations in the food, health care and trade systems, as well as carrying out action research and advocacy, capacity building and community empowerment using a Human Rights-Based Approach.
What we do
CEFROHT promotes the right to adequate living through an inter-related program of social justice and strategic litigation, community empowerment, and advocacy. Through the program, we also promote access to adequate food as a constitutional right and promote the realization of economic right especially among the vulnerable population.
