You do have human rights
We all have human rights
But what are human rights?
Human rights are rights we have just because we are human. Human beings have an instinctive sense of justice and fair play where their own rights are concerned. We know when our rights are being violated, even in very subtle ways. But to make sure the rights of others are protected we need to know what human rights are. This website teaches the human rights agreed by the nations of the world in 1948 and published as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Where do human rights come from? The inherent dignity of every human being. Each right you have is also a responsibility to respect that right in others. The rights are like the glue that holds society together and gives expression to human dignity.
We teach people young and old about the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Universal means they apply to everybody. We all have human rights, and a declaration is a statement made public. We tell everyone they have rights and that those rights are owned by all people.
We teach those with power how to protect the weaker and more vulnerable people in society and empower the less powerful members of societies with knowledge of their human rights and how to share that knowledge with others.
We focus our human rights education on,
Although these groups are mostly made up of young people, it is adults who are the main perpetrators and have the main responsibility for safeguarding and child protection. Education on human rights will greatly help to correct problems in society as well as preventing them from recurring. Human rights education improves mutual understanding and social cohesion.
These are all violations of human rights and we should all be educated about them. Violations of human rights for anyone threaten the human rights of everyone.
