Target Groups of APAP
APAP’s targets are the poor. APAP recognizes that, poverty is a denial of human rights and is both a cause and a product of human rights violations. The definition of the poor goes with the understanding of poverty from a human rights perspective. It also recognizes that tackling poverty as a human rights obligation and challenge is key to the realization of poverty reduction efforts and development goals.
The human rights perspective of poverty identifies the poor as those sections of the society who are the recurrent victims of non-realization of rights and those who are in situations of vulnerability.
It logically follows that the people whose rights are denied are poor; that they do not have easy access to the justice system, to the decision-making process and little or no access to resources and basic services such as food, education, health and housing. Those who are denied of such basic rights and entitlements constitute the poor who are the primary targets of APAP.
