Human Rights Day celebrated

2 Mar,2017Training

Human Rights Day is a national day that is commemorated annually on 21 March to remind South Africans about the sacrifices that accompanied the struggle for the attainment of democracy in South Africa.

The commemoration provides the country with an opportunity to reflect on progress made in the promotion and protection of human rights. The Molteno Team in the Eastern Cape celebrated Human Rights Day on the 22nd March with learners from the Joe Slovo Freedom High School and the Molteno community.

Social Development Officer, Yvonne Nte, said that their event was aimed at ensuring that foreigners also enjoy human rights after several incidents in which they were attacked.

“We realised that communities need to be educated on human rights including rights of foreigners,” said Nte.
