Being funded by the European Union under Sector Budget Support, the programme aims at creating awareness of socio economic rights which are particularly important in the South African context of widespread poverty and inequality.

The AMARIGHTZA programme is primarily aimed at promoting the rights of vulnerable and marginalized groups. While persons living in extreme poverty should not simply be reduced to a list of vulnerable groups, Discrimination and exclusion are among the major causes and consequences of poverty. Persons living in poverty often experience disadvantage and discrimination based on race, gender, age, ethnicity, religion, language, disability, sexual orientation or other status.
