The Democracy and Human Rights Fund Activity (DHRF) is one of a variety of programs used by the U.S. government (USG) to promote and defend civil and political rights, strengthen democratic institutions and civil society, and foster democratic values and practices in the states of Sub-Saharan Africa. It was authorized in May 2000, building upon the foundation laid by the original Democracy and Human Rights Fund (DHRF). Embassies have recognized the impact that DHRF and DHRF II activities have made in strengthening nascent civil society groups that lack access to financial or organizational support. The projects which could be funded human rights must:
- be implemented within a period not exceeding one year

- reform and the strengthening of the judicial system
- support to parliaments
