Human Rights

All people deserve basic human rights. URI works to ensure no one is left out.
Kathak Dharohar CC with disabled children on World Handicap Day

By encouraging members of all religions and faith traditions to work together to achieve fundamental human rights, Cooperation Circles lay the groundwork for connection on a personal and a universal level.

Examples of our work in this Action Area:

• URI members in Jordan attended an intensive training on the international legal and policy framework of children's rights, to better protect children living in conflict zones.

• URI Bulgaria marked International Roma Day with social justice and Holocaust awareness training, helping an interfaith crowd understand more about a history of human rights abuses, while helping Roma youth feel more connected to their traditions.

Karickam International Public School CC, in Kottarakkara, India, educates all children regardless of their caste, creating a culture of equal opportunity.
