Let's stand up for equality, justice & human dignity!
This year, Human Rights Day marks the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a milestone document that proclaimed the inalienable rights which everyone is inherently entitled to as a human being regardless of race, colour, religion, sex, language, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights empowers us all. Humana People to People values the principles enshrined in the Declaration as being relevant in our today as they were in 1948.
Human rights are the basic rights and freedoms that belong to every person in the world, from birth until death. We need to stand up for our own rights and those of others.
The Declaration sets out universal values and a common standard to be achieved by all peoples and all nations. Thanks to the Declaration, and States' commitments to its principles, the dignity of millions has been uplifted and the foundation for a more just world has been laid. While its promise is yet to be fully realized, the very fact that it has stood the test of time is testament to the enduring universality of its perennial values of equality, justice and human dignity.
Human rights are at the heart of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), as in the absence of human dignity we cannot drive sustainable development. Human Rights are driven by progress on all SDGs, and the SDGs are driven by advancements on human rights.
Humana People to People together with the people at its many projects take action to uphold the rights that protect us all and thereby promote the kinship of all human beings. Many of the development concepts being spearheaded by Humana People to People members in Africa, Asia and Latin Africa as well as the collection and sales of second hand activities which are on-going in Europe and the United States of America are all aligned to the United Nations formulated Sustainable Development Goals seeking to transform lives by 2030.
Our approach to development creation at community level all are based on promoting humanity, peace and stability. The people driven and people centered strategies have made it possible to nurture harmony among the people where we build capacity of improved farming, we fight major diseases in the form of HIV and AIDS, Tuberculosis, and malaria; we organize the families and communities to create better conditions for the growth of children among other initiatives. We see people coming together in unity with a shared concern of attacking the negative effects of poverty.
Building functioning communities for Humana People to People is crucial to achieve sustainable development. Our projects undertake various trainings, community mobilization actions, individual discussions and group dialogue seeking to confront challenges and identify the appropriate solutions which empower the people to adopt new practices which transform their lives. Many lives are saved, access to education is availed, food security is strengthened, children have hope for a better future and many families are mitigating and adapting to climate change.
“We are human only through the humanity of others”, is a quote from the former President of South Africa Nelson Mandela. Just as each one of us needs the other to exist, there is great need to promote co-existence and mutual co-operation to support development.
Humana People to People invites you to take an active part to bring people together and work as one for our shared humanity, for sustainable development and for prosperity.
