In celebrating people who stand up for Human Rights and drive positive change everywhere, we have been able to bring fresh solutions and ideas to shape the future we want in Taraba State.
Our fight for Human Rights will continue until we end violence against vulnerable women and men in Taraba State. Let’s empower our people to know and claim their rights, and have their voice heard.
On this Human Rights Day, we want education to be accessible to everybody, everywhere. It is a powerful tool to enable our participation in building societies where human rights are valued and respected.
We're convinced that we all must raise to the greatest threat to Human Rights: Right to life, Right to food, Right to health, Right to live without violence.
We must protect the most vulnerable, the poorest, who will be the most affected. No one is too young to change the world.
