Heart’s Home’s con­tri­bu­tion to the International Human Rights system is grounded on its work for human dig­nity and its involve­ment in some Millennium Development Goals (“erad­i­cate extreme poverty and hunger” and “achieve uni­versal pri­mary edu­ca­tion”).

Therefore we are enti­tled to take part in all debates occur­ring in the Human Rights bodies and coun­cils. We create con­nec­tions therein between inter­na­tional issues and everyday con­cerns, by preparing our inter­ven­tions with our vol­un­teers’, friends’ and neigh­bours’ accounts of the sit­u­a­tion on the field.

Listening to every­body’s views, and trying to make the most out of them, is of great impor­tance for Heart’s Home. That is the ref­er­ence we thrive to follow in each of our actions and state­ments at the UN.

Through our spe­cial con­sul­ta­tive status we are enti­tled to attend the ses­sions of the Economic and Social Council, and all affil­i­ated offices. We par­tic­u­larly value the work of the Human Rights Council and try to be pre­sent at all of its meet­ings.
