Tuesday 4 July the United Nations Information Centre (UNIC) Windhoek launched the excitingly new Human Rights Visionary Programme. The outreach was pioneered at both Emmanuel Shifidi Secondary School and Highline Secondary School in Katutura.
The Human Rights Visionary Programme aims to communicate the fundamental principles of the United Nations (UN) verified through the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). The programme focuses on the first article of the UDHR which states that “all people are born free and equal in dignity and rights.” The aim is to spread the vision contained in the first sentence of the declaration which demands for a world where everyone has an equal dignity in practice and not just on paper.
1. To educate High School Learners about the United Nations.
2. To raise awareness of the importance of Human Rights.
3. To impart the values of dignity and equality to their fullest extent.
4. To inspire and spread the vision of an ideal world where the full realization of Human Rights become a reality.
