Human Rights

Human rights are commonly understood as “inalienable fundamental rights to which a person is inherently entitled simply because she or he is a human being. Human rights are thus conceived as universal (applicable everywhere) and egalitarian (the same for everyone). We often ignore abuses against children and religious minorities. A major portion of the population consists of youths and children who are highly exposed to exploitation. Gender discrimination against women and harassment at workplaces is common in almost every sector. Violence against women is a most urgent item of concern. The social acceptance of many of these problems hinders their eradication. One prominent example is honor killings. Without literacy what hope do our women have of pulling themselves out of the abyss. Our organization has also recently included transgender in its human rights program for to reduce their marginalization.
