Life-saving and life-changing results from around the world continue to pour in. For example, children bullied a young 5-year old kindergartener with disabilities. With the help of her mother, they taught those bullies about human rights. The bullying stopped. A 10-year old came to school determined to commit suicide. He participated in a 1-hour human rights lesson, realized that he had the same rights as his abuser. He decided to report the situation instead of committing suicide. A 12-year old was inspired to help. Her human rights education activities later earned her “The Youngest Human Rights Lecturer” in the Limca Book of Records in India. So inspiring!
Collaborations bring the parties significant expansion and strength. Together we unite diverse peoples, inspire a movement of passionate young human rights educators who, in turn, share their knowledge and experiences with others. We host community outreach, meetings, workshops, events, conferences, international summits, garnering global media and noble awards, including being honored with the Summit Medal of Recognition for Social Activism during the 2019 World Peace Summit for Nobel Peace Laureates.
After years of experiences, our free online United for Human Rights and Youth for Human Rights International videos, materials, and virtual classrooms in 27 languages are easy to use and understand. Education is key. Knowledge is power. Every child everywhere deserves to know that they have human rights.
