What happens when young people don't know their human rights?
The purpose of Youth for Human Rights International is to teach youth about human rights, specifically the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and inspire them to become advocates for tolerance and peace.
A Youth for Human Rights International membership supports this purpose. Through educating our youth about their human rights, we make an immediate difference in their lives and how they treat others.
In South Africa, a project was done at a school which had a chronic bullying problem. The school had no solution for it, and students were the victims of abuse and violence as a result.
After discussions and talks on human rights and watching the Youth for Human Rights 30 Public Service Announcements DVD, the students and educators decided to handle the problem of bullying and violence in their school. Students came forward with apologies and regrets about their behaviour, and pledged that the school would be safe and that violence and bullying would be a thing of the past.
