In a region where human rights resources are few and far between, GCI strives to fill the gap and provide services for those seeking information, consultancy, and redress for human rights abuses. We offer the following services to the general public:
For victims of human rights abuses and parties seeking mediation, GCI offers counseling, pro-bono legal assistance, and alternate dispute resolution (ADR) services through its Drop-In Centre. The Centre operates out of the Kumba office and is open Monday-Friday from 8 am to 4 pm. Click here for more information.
Given its strong, vocal role in local social justice issues, GCI is eager to partner with any national or international body or firm to conduct necessary reserach and deliver analysis. In the past, GCI has conculted on issues such as internally displaced persons, prisoners’ rights, and refugees in Cameroon. Click here for more information.
Education and Training
GCI believes in creating a strong global conscience on the topic of human rights. To facilitate the creation of networks of conscientious professionals, public officials, and interested citizens, GCI offers educational workshops and training seminars on topics such as Prisoners’ Rights, Gender Equality, and Human Rights public policy.

Since information on human rights topics is hard to come by here in Kumba and Southwest Cameroon, GCI holds an open-office information service, where researchers, professionals, and interested persons are welcome to stop by and peruse our selection of publications, magazines, protocols, and handbooks concerning human rights topics. We are open Monday through Friday, from 8 am to 4 pm. Click here for more information.
