Human Rights Class in a Box Elementary Schools

Class in a Box

International Solidarity for Human Rights moves forward in its continue effort to educate and make people aware about the importance of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as a Way of Life.

It is time to arm the children with a set of tools essential to their development that protects them from discrimination, inequality and slavery. Just as a child must build interdependent motor skills to be able to perform complex nerve and muscle acts to produce movement, children must build the ability to perform using the 30 interdependent human rights that they are entitled with since birth. The improvement of one right will facilitate the advancement of all of them

This program, Human Rights Class in a Box for Elementary Schools, is a tool for the children to change to positive attitudes towards compassion, empathy, kindness and no discrimination (anti bullying).

All children in this program learn and exercise reading skills, creativity and team work and the most important thing they learn about their inalienable and interconnected 30 Human Rights.

This program has become international. ISHR’s  facilitators are willing to travel abroad, if terms are agreed, to implement HRCB in any school around the world.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights sets out the 30 fundamental human rights that protect the dignity of every human being. The recognition of the inherent, equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.

Program

Respect for all human rights starts at home. It starts in our own relationships, neighborhoods, our own schools, workplaces, cities, kitchen tables.

The more we understand and accept, the more we are open to differences between people in our own lives, then the more we can see our similarities.

The Diversity, Cultural Outreach, and Prevention Department of ISHR, would like to invite you to participate in our Human Rights centered Program.
