“Human development is a process of enlarging people’s choices. The most critical ones are to lead a long and healthy life, to be educated and to enjoy a decent standard of living. Additional choices include political freedom, guaranteed human rights and self respect.”

Homo Faber is a Lublin NGO working in the field of human rights. The organisation’s main interest is the relation between an individual and the authorities. One of Homo Faber’s aims is to constructively monitor whether the authorities effectively fulfil their duties, and whether they respect human rights and freedom. The association acts on behalf of minority groups; it confronts all kinds of discrimination based on gender, race, ethnicity, nationality, skin colour, religion, language, age and sexual orientation.
