30 Days of Human Rights. Through the United Nations, the world has recognized a set of rights afford to each person. Project 1948 celebrates these rights to remind each of us that every life is valuable and unique.
During World War II, the Allies defined the Four Freedoms - Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Religion, Freedom from Fear and Freedom from Want as their basic war aims. Not just the overthrow of the enemy regimes, but a basic foundation of Freedom that every person deserved. Immediately after the war, the United Nations was created to bind the nations into the spirit of the Four Freedoms. One of the first acts of the fledging group of statesmen was to create a Commission on Human Rights. Out of this pioneering work, chaired by Eleanor Roosevelt, came the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. That is what we at Project1948.ngo are celebrating for the next 30 days.
