Human Rights: Cultural Communication
"Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, color, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Furthermore, no distinction shall be made on the basis of the political, jurisdictional or international status of the country or territory to which a person belongs, whether it be independent, trust, non-self-governing or under any other limitation of sovereignty.”
Do people in your country discriminate others because of their race, color, sex and others?
This is the second article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). In the communication regarding the first article of the UDHR, we emphasized the importance of safeguarding our freedom.The second article of the declaration is about how the United Nations (UN) compromised itself to protectthe wellbeing of human beings by avoiding any kind of discrimination regarding race, color, sex, and others. Even though the UN has committed to this significant and vital pledge, it has not been easy for them to pursue this dream where we can all harmoniously live together with respect and tolerance.
Did you know that some of the people who help make the world a better place started when they were kids? RyanHreljacis one of them. He was six years old when he started helping people in Africa to get drinkable water. What motivated him? He was in the classroom when his teacher was explaining that people who live in Africa needed to walk between one to ten miles in order to reach drinkable water. He realized that he just needed to walk ten steps in order to reach water, and this incredible gap made him create change. Until now, Ryan Hreljachas helped to build more than 740 wells, helping more than 789,900 people in Africa to get this vital resource.
We invite you to follow the steps of outstanding people like Ryan, and give back to your community today. I am glad to tell you that at AIU High School, we are helping to improve our world.We teach our students about coexisting and always respecting each other. We believe in a better tomorrow where we can live fraternally and in peace."We have learned to fly the air like birds and swim the sea like fish, but we have not yet learned the simple art of living together as brothers.” Martin Luther King.
