What We Do
We work for moral and socio-economic justice for all citizens. The organisation strives to ensure that citizens are empowered to demand for the efficient and transparent use of public resources to benefit all, particularly, the grassroots communities.
Influencing policies to respond to the needs and interests of grassroots communities is at the heart of TERELEPAR’s work. TERELEPAR works using inter-religious structures to reach the grassroots communities and district level strategic allies and partners, to ensure peace and harmony, good governance and accountable leadership.
