Supporting human rights defenders who also work to ensure that victims of torture obtain redress, including an enforceable right to fair and adequate compensation, and full rehabilitation.
The work of human rights defenders is essential to promote and protect human rights and the rule of law.
Our work to support human rights defenders builds their capacity and expertise, strengthens their recognition and protection under international law, and seeks to protect them from threats, risks and reprisals.
Our work focuses on some of the human rights defenders who are most marginalised or at risk.
A social networking service focuses on building social relations among people, e.g., who share interests or activities.
We’re going to talk about how to move your home office computer free open source alternatives to Microsoft Office, Photoshop and more to supporting human rights defenders
Over the past twenty years, Linux has moved from being something utterly incomprehensible to many, to being a viable operating system for most users.
What is open source?
Open source is a licensing model for computer software. The source code is available to everyone and they can change and redistribute it for free.
At the home office of social work we’re working in open source on a project which aims to help people develop accessible forms.
We’re already going through a major digital transformation, so let’s make it open source. It’s not quite as easy as it sounds though because there’s a cost to open sourcing. We need time and money to maintain open source projects and we need to be clear how we’ll support them.
We also need to inform about what we’re doing to get the community involved and encourage others to do the same. We want to share each other’s work so that we can continue to benefit from the already excellent open source community.*
LibreOffice is community-driven and developed software, and is a project of the not-for-profit organization, The Document Foundation. LibreOffice is free and open source software, originally based on OpenOffice.org (commonly known as OpenOffice), and is the most actively developed OpenOffice.org successor project.
If you want a great office suite but don't want to pay a penny, try the just-released LibreOffice 5.0. It's better and faster than previous versions.
Those who work with other people who use Word documents --- in other words, pretty much the entire world --- will be pleased to learn that it's better at working with Word docs, and preserves more formatting features.
Essentially an open office suite that parted ways with OpenOffice back in 2010, the cross-platform LibreOffice uses the same underlying source code and features the same basic productivity tools, but looks very different.
The Free & Open Source Image Editor
This is the official website of the GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP).
A free, open-source, image editor, the GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP) has been a go-to tool for Linux users for years, but has a reputation for being hard to use and lacking many of Photoshop’s features. The reality has changed dramatically over the last couple years. GIMP now has a very competent user interface, as well as an extensive and powerful set of features. Its openly extensible nature means that in some areas, like running well-known image processing algorithms on your photos, it actually outshines Adobe Photoshop.
Menus also closely parallel Photoshop’s, with File, Edit, Select, View, Image, Filters, and Help serving the same functions — although in a slightly different order.

We also work to ensure that victims of torture obtain redress, including an enforceable right to fair and adequate compensation, and full rehabilitation. Every day, in prisons, police stations and places of detention both official and secret, women, men and children are deliberately and atrociously tortured. They are made to suffer pain and humiliation, and may be made to watch vulnerable family members being tortured. They suffer prolonged isolation and lengthy interrogation; medical treatment, food and water is withheld from them for long periods of time.
