Do we know our rights?

People must be informed about their rights in order to be able to protect and defend them. Human rights education should start at an early age and be an important part of the school curriculum.This will give everyone the confidence early on to stand up for their opinions, speak openly about the needs of their community and unite with others so that they work together for the changes that are needed.
