The Project's Human Rights Educators

When the time comes to obtain a recommendation for adopting a human rights quotation, the NGO contacts one of the Project's human rights educators directly.

The Project's human rights educator will talk with your organization, usually via e-mail. Your organization will be asked to give the human rights educator an understanding of the organization's goal and membership. On that basis, the educator will be able to suggest which human rights quotation seems well-suited to your organization.

After deciding which human rights quotation it will adopt, the organization then proceeds to print the quotation on its letterhead, fund-raising mailers, brochures, posters, tee-shirts, on its website, and in other logical locations. In that way, as the organization distributes its organizational messages, it is at the same time educating about human rights. This basic form of education happens every time the organization sends out a letter -- or an email - or hands out its brochure - or sells a tee-shirt, with a human right quotation printed on it.

It's as simple at that. There are no costs.
