Education is the foundation and catalyst for changing the state of human rights in the world, but educators need effective materials and tools they can use to easily incorporate human rights in their curriculum. Recognizing this, United for Human Rights has the answer: the Bringing Human Rights to Life Education Package. Free to educators, it gives teachers and educators everywhere a resource to help bring the concepts of human rights to life and make them a reality in the hearts, minds and actions of those who study the subject.

Knowledge of the problem is the first step in moving people into action to remedy it and this package has been designed to provide that knowledge.


United for Human Rights and Youth for Human Rights chapters are active the world over, educating people on their human rights. You can take an active role to forward the cause of human rights in your community or professional area. To join an existing human rights chapter, contact us through this form and we will connect you to your nearest chapter. Please provide us as much information as possible about your interests or any current activities you are part of so we can assist you to get started.


The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is the fundamental and international agreement on what human rights are, and so must be known and applied throughout the world.
