Decade of Human Rights, Inc. aka Human Rights for All Now

aka Human Rights Fr all now   |   New York, NY   |  http://www.pdhre.org

Mission

Founded in 1989 as a non-profit, international service organization with a deep belief in the power of human rights learning for economic and social transformation. We have worked directly and indirectly with our network of affiliates and partners in over 60 countries around the world to develop and advance the learning about human rights as way of life, enabling women and men to re-imagine their lives and discover their own power to define the destiny of their community. Participating in the planning of their future, the human rights framework provides them with the guideline to pursue their hopes. We are being constantly revitalized by actions being taken in the community to create a space for a meaningful change as a result of internalizing the praxis of human rights. Assuming social responsibility, people move away from humiliation to belong in their community in dignity with others. Programs are planned by, for, and with communities to: - Catalyze and enhance mentoring and monitoring; - Promote gender equality; - Enhance local human and social development programs; - Take actions to overcome discrimination; - Strengthen citizens' equal and informed participation in the decision-making process - Enable people to become agents of change

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

1. Human Rights Cities: Now also Washington DC has been declared by the City Council as a HUMAN RIGHT CITY. Imagine living in a society where all citizens have made a pledge to build a community based on equality and nondiscrimination; --where all women and men are actively participating in the decisions that affect their daily lives guided by the human rights framework; where people have a holistic vision of human rights to overcome fear and impoverishment, a society that provides human security, access to food, clean water, housing, education, healthcare and work at livable wages, sharing these resources with all citizens-- not as a gift, but as a realization of human rights. A Human Rights city is a practical viable model that demonstrates that living in such a society is possible!

We live in a world where a multitude of organizations work to solve the enormous problems humanity is facing one project at the time. we believe that the holistic, practical human rights framework if known and internalized by women and men at the community level holds the promise for meaningful, positive change. A Human Rights City is where local groups and organizations, those attending to a larger range of social and economic justice issues in the city, join to learn about human rights as relevant to their daily lives. Forming into a Steering Committee they develop learning programs throughout the city, encouraging people to participate in the decision that determine their lives. They develop critical thinking to examine symptoms vs. causes of many issues such as lack of clean water, violence against women, poverty, education, food and employment. These are issues that can be solved if the decisions made by communites are guided by the human rights framework.

2. Establishing Regional Learning Institution for Human Rights Education, in Africa, Latin America, South East Asia, and South Asia and the International one in New York. The Institutions aim to develop a new vocation: human rights educator at the grassroots level.

3. Developing pedagogies, strategies and materials for training in human rights with a gender perspective.
