Through human rights education you can empower yourself and others to develop the skills and attitudes that promote equality, dignity and respect in your community, society and worldwide.
Looking around the world today, human rights continue to be under threat and advocates vilified. Until governments put human rights on top of their agenda and the foundation of governance, the realization of every individual’s human rights remains a dream. Amnesty International Philippines puts great value in creating safe learning spaces on human rights with its members, supporters and the broad public.
Human rights education (HRE) is integral in our programs as we capacitate our members in various settings. We facilitate learning sessions among rights holders in communities including indigenous communities to push local and global campaigns. Through our Membership Development Program, we facilitate learning sessions on human rights essentials and introductory session on Amnesty International to interested groups and individuals.
In the midst of the current Covid-19 pandemic, we are developing learning materials and facilitating online HRE learning sessions. We encourage you to participate in our future online discussions. Be part of our Human Rights Education Team.
