Today on this Human Rights day (10 December) we marked the 70th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
The day also marks the end of the 16 days of activism against Gender Based Violence. How are we tracking on all these? And a simpler question, what has impacted you the most during these last 16 days?
We will share a few posts that have resonated with us.
- An interview by Dr Mercy Korir and persons with vitiligo in Kenya (KTN News). What struck us was how open and vulnerable the young people were in responding to the questions raised, and how society has shown rejection rather than inclusion and acceptance. We can be better, do better.
- The #In Her Shoes# campaign by HIVOS East Africa on Ending Gender Based Violence. The images were vivid and spoke loudly. Below are two images from the campaign.
- And last but not least, an inclusion campaign by CBM Australia to mark the International Day of Persons with Disability 2018 with the theme #Dont Underestimate Me#
