International solidarity for human rights, Inc Impact Report 2018 The New Generation

International Solidarity for Human Rights Foundation raises essentially private funds for its human rights education and learning programs such as Human Rights Class in a Box, The Route to Human Rights, and other programs that elevate the knowledge about the importance of a human rights culture necessary for equality, justice and peace in our society and in the larger world. Only 5% of the world population know that human rights exit, and only 1% out that 5% percent have read the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. With your support, we can close the gap of ignorance about the human rights that protect human beings from injustices and promote understanding among all people and all nations.

International Solidarity for Human Rights (ISHR) is about human rights education and learning, as proclaimed in the Preamble of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). The Preamble of the UDHR states "that every individual and every organ of society, keeping this Declaration constantly in mind, shall strive by teaching and education to promote respect for these rights and freedoms and by progressive measures, national and international, to secure their universal and effective recognition and observance, both among the peoples of Member States themselves and among the peoples of territories under their jurisdiction" . Human rights education is all learning that develops the knowledge, skills, and values of human rights.

For 10 years, ISHR has been providing thousands of students, in our community and abroad, the opportunity to learn about our basic, inalienable, indivisible and interrelated human rights. These rights preserve the dignity of the human being. Education is a human right and through ISHR's programs "The Route to Human Rights" and "Human Rights Class in a Box" ISHR has been able to impact positively in the fulfillmen of Article 26 Right to Education. Education for human rights means understanding and embracing the principles of human equality and dignity and the commitment to respect and protect the rights of all people.

Donors are especial individuals. Generous donors invest in extraordinary causes. Becaus of the generosity of individuals, families, corporations, foundations and organizations, ISHR has been able to inspire and educate students to be better Global Citizens. Thanks

Elizabeth Sanchez - Vegas, President ISHR

Children's Holiday at North- Little hands for HUMAN RIGHTS TENT

The definition of poverty is steadily moving towards a human rights-based vision highlighting its underlying multitude of causes. This is based on the recognition that real success in poverty eradication requires giving the poor and vulnerable a stake, a voice and real protection in the societies where they live. These efforts include such activities as empowering people to participate fully, equally and responsibly in decision-making; and also conducting advocacy and awareness-raising campaigns and fostering access to information in a user-friendly way in local languages for broader outreach. It also attempts to ensure that poverty analysis addresses the multiplicity of causes of deprivation, exclusion and discrimination of the poor. This approach points to a holistic approach to human rights and poverty reduction through the integration of economic/social rights together with civil/political rights".

Every year International Solidarity for Human Rights collaboration with Miami Dade College North Campus delights thousands of children and adults in the Little Hands for Human Rights Tent. More than 1,000 people (children + families) visit the Tent. They are entertained with activities related to the promotion and learning of human rights through games and performances.

The values of the right to study, the values of the right to health food and shelter, the right to have a family, the right to not be discriminated against, the right to equality, are essential for the dignity of all people.
