Larissa shared: “The Committee mentioned in the final observations to Costa Rica almost all the issues that we raised. I cannot tell you how happy I am and the impact that this will have over the years. All the learning [in the Human Rights Advocates Program] on advocacy, communications, funding, etc. was definitely put to use!

Advocate Julienne Mugaruka Byenda is currently participating in the Human Rights Advocates Program (HRAP). She is the Advocacy Officer/La Colombe ASBL in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Why did you apply to HRAP?

I hope networking during my participation in HRAP will benefit my organization and the trans community because of the international human rights organizations, institutions, foundations, and donors I will meet in New York City. These meetings can lead to joint projects and funding opportunities for my organization.
