‘Human Rights are not a privilege conferred by Government. They are every human being’s entitlement by virtue of his humanity’. -Mother Teresa
Human Rights Day is observed by the international community every year on 10 December. It commemorates the day in 1948 the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
The theme of Human Rights Day 2020 is to “Recover Better – Stand Up for Human Rights”.
On this day, let us renew our pledge to eliminate inequalities, discrimination and commit to protect the human rights of all, especially those who are vulnerable and marginalized to build a world which is more resilient, just and inclusive.
Let us cherish the ideals of this international declaration.
