Empowering youth for human rights









As a volunteer to UNA-Uganda, it was a golden opportunity for me to be fully trained as a Youth Human Rights Trainer in Maseru, Lesotho.

This was  courtesy of The Commonwealth Secretariat African Region and support from UNAU secretariat. In the workshop, several African Commonwealth states were represented and these included; Lesotho (the host country), Rwanda, South Africa, Ghana, Tanzania, Botswana, Zambia, Malawi, Namibia, Swaziland, Mauritius and Uganda.

The training was built around the main topic; “Understanding human rights principles and values” a powerful tools to enhance participation, reinforce accountability and create spaces for peaceful dialogue among youth as well as between youth and different sectors of society.

Some of the expects and trainers included; Diana Copper and Daniel Roy whose professions are; Human Rights Adviser at the Commonwealth Secretariat under the Human Rights Unit in London and Senior Education Specialist in Montreal, Canada working with Equitas which is an international center for Human Rights Education respectively.

The training focused on  building confidence, objectivity, analytical skills and capacity among participants both in terms of knowledge of human rights,  zeal and the ability  to impart the learned knowledge to  fellow youth from respective communities, regions, nations and globally finally.

The training promoted and valued the sharing of personal knowledge and experience of human rights.

As a youth leader, I was privileged to brain storm with other African youth leaders on human rights temperature of different African countries in comparison to my country Uganda. I am looking forward to seeing a world that respects human dignity, fully engages the youth in political or international processes for change with an equal and inclusive global society.
