Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

Human IS Right seeks to address and improve Cameroon's most pressing human rights issues: chiefly, corruption, abuse of prisoners' rights, gender inequality, civil liberty deficiencies, and lack of access to efficient and effective justice. Whereby promoting and protecting the human rights and freedoms enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, HisR strives to participate in the construction of a strong global conscience, through which the citizens of Cameroon can work together to advance all human rights.
Based on the belief that lasting peace must come from within a people and their own culture, HisR focuses on working with individual citizens as well as the media, government bodies, local councils, law enforcement and judicial systems. By encouraging and empowering the public to play an active role in supporting peace and development, HisR strives to help strengthen the communities with which it works. Through this, HisR facilitates the creation of networks of conscientious organizations and individuals who work together to promote democracy and human rights.
Human IS Right in partnership with International Governance Institute is seeking an Education, Integrity and Development Intern to work at their office in Cameroon on Human Rights, peace building and Anti-Corruption. This is a unique opportunity to learn about the fight against corruption at the policy and grass roots level, with broad exposure to a wide variety of civil society organizations, government and military partners, and representatives from fields closely related to peace building.
