Human Rights Education Toolkits for the Write for Rights campaign 2020

These Human Rights Education toolkits were created to support teachers’ participation with their students in the W4R campaign. They provide a broad perspective on human rights issues and offer the opportunity to open young people’s minds to global concerns. By learning about and writing persuasive letters to help end human rights violations and achieve justice, teachers and students contribute to the international human rights movement and see for  themselves how words can make a difference in the world.
