Rights Education hangout today with students of Advance Private Secondary School, Lagos State.
Did you know that the realization of the inherent human rights of everyone is a precondition for the possibility of a just society?
Human Rights session at BAPTIST COLLEGE.
The idea of freedom and rights have been part of human societies since the birth of first civilizations.
Today, our modern world relies on this fundamental perception to save itself from injustice.
It’s always pleasant to inculcate this idea into our young ones.
With the use of relevant teaching materials, we illustrated to the students the International Bill of Human Rights.
We look forward to these young ones becoming invaluable advocates for peace and tolerance.
Thank You Wonderful College.
