Human Rights

These groups work toward a world where the human rights defined by international law are maintained, protected and observed.

Human rights are built on shared values like dignity, fairness, equality, respect and independence, and apply to every person in the world regardless of race, gender, age, nationality or any other factor.

Many of the other causes on this site tie directly into the areas addressed by the human rights.
