Congratulations to 2019 Advocate Nodjigoto Charbonnel and his organization Association Jeunesse pour la Paix et la Non-Violence (AJPNV) for winning the 2022 Rafto Prize. The Rafto Prize Award Statement in part says Nodjigoto and AJPNV were chosen for “their courageous struggle to abolish torture in Chad as well as internationally. In the context of authoritarianism, terrorism, war on terror, and institutionalized violence, and at great personal risk, Charbonnel and his team assist survivors in rebuilding their lives after torture and advocate the protection of human rights, and the prevention of torture and sexual violence by providing human rights education for youth and civil society.”
