Congratulations! You have successfully completed the first week of the UDHR course.

We hope that this week fulfilled your expectations and that you are now able to:

  • Explore how the Universal Declaration of Human Rights relates to your daily life
  • Explain the significance of the UDHR to promote human dignity
  • Justify the importance of upholding the key principles of human rights

You now have a proper understanding of the key principles of human rights and how these are useful in your daily life. You should not only use the knowledge and skills you have acquired to defend your rights, but also to help others know and claim their rights.
