Guidelines of assistance

The Ubuntu Hub Cities initiative is a relocation initiative for HRDs at risk across Africa. Relocation should be a measure of last resort. Any human rights defender at risk, threatened or persecuted for their work can apply for temporary relocation.


AfricanDefenders (the Pan-African Human Rights Defenders Network) is a network of five African sub-regional organisations, dedicated to the promotion and protection of human rights defenders (HRDs) across the African continent.
