Speech on Human Rights Day in English
Speech – 1
I welcome everyone to the sixth annual celebration of Human Rights Day. Our NGO was established seven years ago with the aim of protecting the rights of common people as well as supporting the poor and the poor. For all those who are new to our NGO, I would like to give brief information about the background of Human Rights Day. Adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in the year 1948. It is celebrated by the international community every year on 10 December. The day is typically marked by high-level political conferences and meetings, as well as cultural events and exhibitions that deal with human rights issues.
Our NGOs deal with all such issues in their own way in this district and give advice related to the protection of human rights. Like every year, this year also we will work for one topic and this year’s theme is ‘Right to Education’. This right is related to the right to free and compulsory primary education for all. As well as a commitment and responsibility to make secondary education available to all, in particular an obligation to be free of the cost of secondary education and equitable and fair access to higher education, through the development of free higher education.
Education is the right of everyone and it is very important to understand the value of education especially for the people living in rural areas. In most remote areas of our country, parents still feel that it is not necessary for the girl to study because in the end she has to take care of the house. This is an absolutely unreasonable expectation as education strengthens the girls and helps them make better decisions as well as manage the household. It also gives them mental and intellectual strength to fight against the evil practices prevalent in our society like dowry torture, domestic violence and other crimes against women.
I am proud that our NGO has transformed around 100 such villages into more awakening places. With the help of donations received, we have so far opened primary, secondary as well as higher secondary schools in about 89 villages and construction of schools in remaining 11 villages is in progress.
In our mission we are getting huge support and appreciation from many people especially youth. There are many young people who spontaneously give free education in these schools and I would say this is a good start. We have received help from the state government to spread awareness about education in more and more villages and rural areas. The government has also promised us financial assistance to open schools in more and more villages.
I am grateful to the government that it is fulfilling its duty and supporting good works. Educating people is a great job and it gives me great satisfaction to see girls going to school, talking positively about their future. I think their parents are more than happy to see a smile on their face because they know that there is no difference between girl and boy and education is everyone’s right.
In the coming year we are aiming for 100 more villages and I want more volunteers who can join this mission. You can give your details at the counter and wait for my mail which will give you more details on the subject. If you have any questions please contact me by phone.

good morning to all. Thank you for taking the time to attend and attend this seminar session. We all have gathered here to talk about this special day of human rights.
This day is celebrated as the memory of all those who stand up for the rights of a human being. Human rights refer to those rights which are owned by every human being. However, even after a few years of defining these rights, some people have not exercised them and some people are ready to violate all these rights. It is high time for the people to really stand up for their rights. We all have the right to vote, the right to speech, the right to education, the right to earn and many other rights. After many debates and issues these rights have been allotted to human beings. It is our responsibility and we have the right to take advantage of every right created for us.
Many human rights have been specially declared for special classes of human beings like persons with disabilities, scheduled castes, scheduled tribes etc. We should all support these people to witness their rights so that they can benefit from them. At present there are about 30, yes, 30 human rights. These rights are very firm and are central to the welfare of human beings. Some of the top rights whose names I tell you are: Right to Equality, Freedom from Discrimination, Right to Education, Right to Social Security, Freedom from Faith and Religion etc.
The things for which we shout like social security, education of the poor etc. Many and many more are already addressed by the council and all these have been declared as human rights. It is our responsibility to maintain them and create awareness among all to follow and avail these rights for the betterment and welfare of the people. These rights were declared in 1948 by the United Nations for a global understanding of how to treat humans.
Every year 10 December is celebrated as Human Rights Day. The day has been recognized as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and as a common standard for all countries to ensure its continued existence and remembrance. I am sure that there are many people like me who do not know about these human rights. Many people are not even aware that there is such a thing and many people may be aware of it but they have no idea what it is and how to deal with it.
My focus is on educating people especially about human rights and their responsibility to teach and use it and spread the word. These rights should be a part of the curriculum of children so that they grow up to know what their rights are and how important it is for them to act on them.
I request all of you to spread awareness about our human rights and ensure that on this day we will arrange a seminar or a special session every year to remember our rights of existence. Thank you for giving and encouraging me to take on the task of addressing this topic effectively and efficiently.

Hello my dear friends, I welcome all of you to this special seminar organized on Human Rights Day!
How many times do we all say that women are treated differently from men, most of the women are unsafe in the society, how many population women are uneducated, white and black people should not differentiate etc. What do all this mean?
This means that we all human beings want men and women to be treated equally. We want social security for women and everyone else, we want everyone to be educated and we don’t want to discriminate. We all want to do this. As mentioned earlier and there are many more rights that we want.
These human rights have been determined after many efforts and discussions for human beings to fulfill their basic needs. Human rights are such rights which are necessary for the dignified and civilized life of human beings as well as human existence and adequate development of human personality. Human rights are essential for the development of human personality of the society where he lives.
I am sure some of the audience present here are not fully aware of the 30 Human Rights Universally Declared by the United Nations in 1948. 30 specific human rights were declared for the protection of human beings and their well being. 10 December is officially celebrated as Human Rights Day.
Every human right must be exercised and complied with. We all have a responsibility to spread the message of these rights among all the people.
The most important of all rights to me is the right to education. To me, getting an education is everyone’s birthright. There are many benefits of getting an education. One who is educated also has the power to change his life and the lives of others. Right to education is of paramount importance. We all should be well aware of these rights. A lot of effort has been made in many decades to list down and propose these rights. At present, important steps exist to protect these human rights.
We all must understand that human rights are those rights which are fundamental to human life and to normal human existence. It is very important for the government of every country to protect and uphold the human rights of the citizens. This is their fundamental duty. We all should take advantage of our rights and do dedicated work to create awareness among the population about these rights. Each of the 30 listed human rights are essential for our well being and survival in society. I request all of you to please share the message with your near relative and loved ones to spread the existence of these rights.

Good morning friends
Thank you for taking the time to join me for this meeting today. I would like to share with you all an important invitation that has come from the local government to our organization. We are invited to support the government and join the ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’ or ‘Clean India Mission’. The campaign is carried out across the city and will be launched on December 10, which is also Human Rights Day. This campaign has been carried out for the last one year, due to which little or no progress has been made in the city. Thus we are invited to join in and help fulfill the mission by achieving better results.
The day of Human Rights Day is best suited to celebrate it because this day is basically celebrated to respect the rights of the people. It urges all to stand up for the rights of oneself and others. Similarly, it is everyone’s right to live in a clean environment and it is also important to stay healthy. There is disrespect and disrespect for basic human rights in almost every part of our country. I myself have seen most educated people, especially in parks and gardens, being careless in disposing of garbage despite the availability of dustbins.
I feel strongly that we should revive humanity. Great deeds don’t always require financial or physical support. In fact, wherever we are, we are capable of bringing about change. On the street, in the neighborhood, parks, schools, offices, public transportation, etc. For each of us to take care of our and the other’s rights and together we can definitely make a difference. A small step can make a big difference. We will go to every school and colleges to share thoughts on cleanliness. We will also hang hoardings and banners printed on roads, parks etc. to make people aware about the benefits of keeping the surroundings clean.
Our gesture doesn’t necessarily have to be big. A small step such as understanding the difference between wet and dry waste and accordingly throwing in the right dustbin can save so many lives. It also spreads many diseases.
It is a grand mission and I have already given my confirmation to the government to join it. I am looking for volunteers who can support me full time in this. I want to let you know that this is a charity work. Thus you will not get any payment other than off-course appreciation and recognition. Also I would need your presence on Saturdays and Sundays when the office is closed. You may face problems while doing all this but it will last for 3 months so your cooperation is highly requested. There is no pressure on you guys at all. Although it is a voluntary work. Next week we are planning to start this work Interested people can send me direct mail. Its agenda will be prepared and shared soon if you want more information in this regard you can also write to me.
