Human Rights Month 2014 kicks off in schools with the #BullyNoMore Campaign
The Human Rights Education programme launched Human Rights Month 2014 by inviting schools to create awareness on Bullying as a Human Rights Abuse.
Human Rights Month (14th November – 10th December) is an annual event by Amnesty International India’s Human Rights Education programme which provides an opportunity for students to learn about human rights issues that are relevant to them, and take action to make a change in their school lives.
This year will focus on the issue of Bullying, which denies children the right to respect, dignity, inclusion and non-discrimination.
100 schools across the country have already received activity packs which consist of fun interactive games and quizzes designed to help parents, students and teachers understand why bullying is a human rights abuse and how it effects children in the long-run. The activities will be carried out across schools in the Human Rights Education network between the 14th and 20th of November.
Human Rights Month 2014 is open to all schools in India. Join the celebrations and organise these exciting games and activities in your schools!
