2nd edition of the Book Fair, providing books, especially in the fields of Human Rights and Development.

The House of Rights, in Guinea-Bissau, opened its doors in 2012, in the building of the former police station-prison, in Bissau historic center. Since then, it has been recognized as a space for collaboration among different Guinean civil society organizations and place of human rights in the country context.

The house is a reference as documentation center and training and debate space, as well as workspace for the Guinean League of Human Rights.

In December this year, the House plans to host the 2nd edition of the Book Fair, providing books, especially in the fields of Human Rights and Development. The House needs appopriate resources to  increase the amount and diversity of books available and also to send the books to the Guinea-Bissau are.
