Human Rights For All is a joint initiative of the European Union  and four UN agencies – United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF), Office of High Commissionaire for Human Rights (OHCHR) and International Labour Organization (ILO).

The programme supports the implementation and monitoring of the National Human Rights Strategy and Action Plan of Georgia in the areas prioritized by the EU-Georgia agreements. This includes the protection of the rights of minorities and vulnerable groups, internal and external oversight of law enforcement, labour rights, protection of privacy, and freedom of expression and information.  

The programme is funded by the European Union based on the Financing Agreement on "Human Rights For All" signed between Georgia and the European Union in May 2015.
