Why My Human Rights exists
”All people have equal value. That is the foundation on which all human rights are based.”
An awareness of one’s human rights can be a source of strength and courage. It can be life changing for someone living under oppression. My Human Rights is a non-profit organization that aims to strengthen the human rights of men, women and children all over the world.
We do this by spreading awareness of the UN Declaration of Human Rights (1948), the UN Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women (1979), and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989) in an innovative and pedagogical way.
Our vision is to give women, men, and children all over the world the opportunity to know their rights and the support to fight for them. We believe that we can play a small part in changing the world.
My Human Rights was founded in 2012 by Emma Wistrand and Carin Granlund Olsen.
My Human Rights produces pedagogical materials based on the UN Declaration of Human Rights, the UN Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women (the women’s convention), and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. The materials are easy to understand and easy to use for anyone who works with raising awareness about human rights. Read more about the materials by clicking on the photos.
Over the years, we’ve worked with a number of organizations that have helped to bring our ideas to fruition in different ways. Thank you!
