Human Rights flow From Schools into Communities: Legacy School Bangalore’s Amnesty Club leads the way!
The Amnesty Club of Legacy School takes human rights out of the classroom and into the community!
Displaying their passion for Human Rights and their exemplar community spirit, the Amnesty Club visited the Nightingales Sandhya Kirana project on September 12th 2014. At this day-care programme for underprivileged senior citizens, the children spread cheer by dancing and singing for the elderly. Later they interacted with the elders, and assisted them in their income-generating activity of making paper bags.
This activity was an example of how students can learn and live Human Rights in their daily lives. A visit to Nightingales Sandhya Kiran was an opportunity or students to understand that each of us have a Right to Dignity, no matter how old, or young we are.
We are proud to recognise this first community action by an Amnesty Club. It is a step towards the Human Rights Education programme’s vision of building a rights respecting society.
