WHO WE ARE
Our rights matter
The preamble of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights establishes that, "... every individual and organ of society... shall strive by teaching and education to promote respect for these rights and freedoms". At HRA we are convinced that our human rights matter and therefore, we are committed to raise awareness on them. Our aim is to raise awareness on human rights in a global scale.
