Muslims for Human Rights
Who we are
Muslims for Human Rights (MUHURI) is a non-governmental organization (NGO) based at the Kenyan Coast. It was founded in September 1997 with the objective of contributing towards the promotion, protection and enjoyment of human rights by all. The operations of MUHURI are guided by five core values, namely: transparency and accountability; gender parity and de-marginalization; respect for human rights; fairness and equity; and constitutionalism and the rule of law. In 2019, we opened an office in Garissa to addresses human rights violations reported in the Northern part of Kenya.
At MUHURI, we promote and defend all human rights accountably, responsively and professionally. We do this in a manner that is consistent with the values in the Constitution of Kenya, recognizing and encouraging staff creativity, continuous learning and teamwork; in partnership with communities of human rights defenders and other stakeholders.
