Human Rights Day with Lyfta

Tuesday 10th December is Human Rights Day which, this year, marks the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.


Log in to your Lyfta account and visit our Awra Amba Experience resource to explore human rights issues - such as the right to health, protection, education and equality - in greater depth.

  • Hear from Awra Amba nurse, Mulaw Lanchi who sees people walk for hours just to access the basic modern healthcare she offers.

  • Explore the fundamental rights covered by the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child on page 24 of the teacher guide.

  • Discuss the right of every human being and community to decide their values on page 26 of the teacher guide.

  • Meet Gebeyehu, who had the opportunity to go to school and get an education, rather than work with cattle like many of the children in the surrounding areas on page 34 of the teacher guide.

In 2015, UN countries adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).

This lesson ties in nicely with SDG 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 10, and 16, which are all about no poverty, zero hunger, good health and well-being, quality education, gender equality, reduced inequalities, and peace, justice and strong institutions.

We at Lyfta believe that it is imperative for our children to know what the SDGs are and to feel empowered to make a positive contribution to a better and more sustainable world.
