70th Anniversary of the UDHR

Human Rights Day 2018 and the 70th Anniversary of the UDHR

On 8 December 2018, we celebrated Human Rights Day and the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights at the National Olympic Stadium of Cambodia. Over twelve hundred Human Rights Champions joined the festivities to show their support to human rights and to celebrate the gift of the Declaration and the principles and standards it helped establish.

What would you do if you were deprived of your nationality? Article 15 of the UDHR

Having a nationality means having access to basic human rights such as health care, education, and employment. Article 15 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights guarantees that we should all be allowed to belong to a country. Tell us what would be the main challenges you would face if you were stateless.

We have duties towards our community - Article 29 of the UDHR

Meet Saem Pona, a café owner in Phnom Penh, and see how he relates to Article 29 of the Declaration, which states that we all have a duty to other people, and we should protect their rights and freedoms.

Human Rights Education in Pursat, Kampong Cham, and Prey Veng

Last month, we traveled to Pursat, Kampong Cham and Prey Veng provinces to talk to school children about human rights. We were happy to see that they already knew about their basic rights such as the right to go to school and to live a happy and healthy life. It’s never too early to be a Human Rights Champion.
