In order to ensure a high level of accuracy in the selection of projects, the NHRF operates with local consultants in most of its priority countries. The main tasks of the consultants are capacity building of grantee organizations, monitoring of projects, and providing advice to the Secretariat on strategies and project applications. The NHRF also uses international networks and references from like-minded donors and national and international human rights organizations in the selection of projects. All NHRF consultants are qualified human rights activists with extensive experience from working with grassroots organizations in their respective countries. Currently the NHRF has consultants in Pakistan, India, Mexico, Colombia and Indonesia.
