“I am not interested in picking up crumbs of compassion thrown from the table of someone who considers himself my master. I want the full menu of rights.”
These famous words are of ‘Desmond Tutu’ who is one of South Africa’s most well-known human rights activists, winning the 1984 Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts in resolving and ending apartheid. Keeping these words in heart, Grade VIII H conducted its special assembly on International Human Rights Day, observed every year on 10th December — the day the United Nations General Assembly adopted, in 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). Students were made aware of this very crucial aspect of humanity-The Human Rights, through various events like speeches, poetry, music, skit, and multimedia presentation. The message that –‘Each one of us is entitled to these fundamental rights by birth’ was very clearly conveyed to all the students thus enriching them and guiding them towards a more free, safer, and happier life.
