Guiding Philosophy
Sauti Moja promotes justice for all people groups, recognizing that global and local inequality is principally due to systemic oppression rooted in self-interest and lack of respect for the rights of others. The specific rights which we support through our "charitable acts" are legally-binding on Canada and articulated in the International Bill of Rights, Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), Convention on Rights of the Child (CRC), and International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (ICERD). We recognize that transformation of both oppressors and the oppressed is necessary in order to achieve social justice and peace for all persons, so believe that Sauti Moja must contribute to increased understanding of the factors contributing to global injustice, as well as ways to address these.
