BACKGROUND
BACKGROUND:
 
 
For the past 15 years CMPHR and HREP (what CMPHR was called before) have been working with children to educate them about human rights, peace, tolerance, social justice, environment & development. Our work is a combination of education about the above issues and avenues and opportunities for hands on activism
 
In 2004 HREP received a HURIGHTS Osaka award for the best Human Rights Education Material in the Asia Pacific Region.
 
The Building Project in an attempt to institutionalise the past 15 years of work by creating a non-profit museum developed primarily for children, with peace and human rights as it curatorial focus.
 
The project consists of over 150,000 square feet of custom built facility on 1.57 acres of land within the old Race Course Gardens in Karachi. It will be a multi-dimensional educational space for children that will provide opportunities to learn about wide spectrum of social issues in an enjoyable, interactive and inspiring environment
 
The facility will be:
   
  • A refreshingly new institutional investment for children that is proactive, preventive, progressive, & forward looking
  • The first institution of its kind in Pakistan
  • The first large scale peace & human rights museum specifically for children anywhere in the world
  • A major landmark for Karachi.
