Social responsibility is for NGOs too
It is often said that human rights are indivisible, and indeed international justice can only stem from, and it turn reinforce, other forms of equality. This is why TRIAL International strives, on its own scale, to set the example with social and environmental initiatives.
The organization is proud of its diverse, multicultural staff representing 12 nationalities. It also values gender equality, and 5 out of 7 program managers are female. Moreover, TRIAL is aware of its interns’ precious contributions and has therefore been part of the We Pay our Interns initiative in Geneva since its creation.
The organization also endeavours to protect the environment: it has installed solar panels to supply its DRC office with electricity and will from now on compensate the carbon emission of its international flights.
These are only small steps, but they are part of a longer path towards justice. As our NGO grows thanks to your kind support, we look forward to paving new ways forward.
