Who We Are


The Manushya Foundation: Empowering Communities; Advancing Social Justice“Manushya” is a Sanskrit term being understood by many communities across Asia and in the world, meaning “humans”, “human being”, or even “human rights” (such as manusia in Bahasa or Malay).


The Manushya Foundation is an Asian regional organisation aiming at empowering local communities to advance Social Justice, Human Rights & Peace. The Manushya Foundation aims at connecting Humans across Asia to build capacities, share experiences, strengthen solidarity and become agents of change.


Since 2017, we have been implementing our three step 'bottom-up' empowerment approach to 'Engage - Mobilise - Empower' Agents of Change. As a women-led organisation, we apply a 'gender lens' to all our work and decided to invest our energy and develop innovative strategies to tackle the most alarming human rights challenges faced by women and marginalised communities in Asia, by working on these four thematic areas: 1. Business & Human Rights - to ensure governments put People over Profit; 2. UN Human Rights Mechanisms - to guarantee meaningful engagement of communities in International Accountability Mechanisms; 3. Women’s Empowerment - to promote women's leadership and ensure women lead human rights movements across Asia; and 4. Digital Rights - to uphold online freedom and push back on censorship in authoritarian regimes. We hope to enable change in those areas by supporting: (1) Capacity Development of local communities; (2) Community-led participatory Research & Advocacy; (3) Coalition Building of intersectional networks; and (4) Sub-granting to ensure communities have the means to fight for their rights.


Manushya Foundation’s strategy lies on three pillars:


1. ENGAGE communities by building their capacities on all UN human rights mechanisms to ensure their effective participation, and by providing them with the tools to efficiently build credible evidence and monitor the human rights situation on the ground (human rights documentation) to hold their government accountable on their human rights obligations.


2. MOBILISE communities around human rights movements, by building CSOs coalitions comprising all human rights issues, where communities are treated equally and can build solidarity and where all human rights are equal (civil and political rights as well as economic, social and cultural rights).


3. EMPOWER communities by ensuring they are at the center of the human rights response in their countries, engaging constructively and providing solutions to their government to improve the human rights on the ground. By applying a bottom-up approach, communities will own their issues, provide solutions and become the agents of change in their countries. Communities will bring back solutions at the local level to further empower their peers, ensuring no one is left behind.


The Manushya Foundation is a small NGO, with the advantages and constraints attached. Every staff member plays an important role and carries responsibilities. Dedication is key as it greatly impacts the work of the organisation. It is therefore necessary to embrace the vision and goals of the organisation and fully commit to its success.
