Our Commitment to Human Rights

 

“Give to every human being every right that you claim for yourself.”

At the FourD group we are passionate about human rights. We are not activists, nor do we look for controversy, we are simply people with compassion.

 

We firmly believe that human rights are the fundamental platform of any humanitarian activity. But in order for human rights to flourish and to become a reality in an area or activity then they must first be known and understood.

In our search for the best human rights education program we discovered Youth for Human Rights International (YHRI) and were honored when they agreed to a partnership.

 

YHRI is a nonprofit organization founded in 2001 by Dr. Mary Shuttleworth, an educator born and raised in apartheid South Africa, where she witnessed firsthand the devastating effects of discrimination and the lack of basic human rights.

The purpose of YHRI 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. YHRI has now grown into a global movement, including hundreds of groups, clubs and chapters around the world.

 

In partnership with YHRI, we teach human rights education both in the classroom and in nontraditional educational settings. We use the YHRI’s materials include the UNITED music video—a street-savvy, multiethnic, anti-bullying message that has captured the imagination of people around the world. We show the 30 short public service message videos depicting the 30 Articles of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights in our workshops and seminars. In less than a minute, youth can learn one of their human rights—and all of them in less than half an hour. The videos have garnered media attention as well, airing on television networks in countries worldwide.
