Celebrate Human Rights Day 2012

On December 10, 1948, the United Nations adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

December 10, 2012

On December 10, 1948, the United Nations adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. After being formally declared 'Human Rights Day' in 1950, December 10 has since become a day to commemorate human rights, and often the events and organzations that fight for them.

Our NetHope member organizations are among the many that honor this day this year. See how they celebrate human rights today:

Children International

On December 10, 1948, the UN adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Children International’s efforts in impoverished communities stem from our belief that children should be treated with dignity and respect. Our program helps with the basic necessities of life—health and dental care, education support and other key areas—while providing a safe social environment and care to children who need it most.
