As a human rights non-governmental organization Kituo´s mission is to promote and protect human rights therefore we are very happy to celebrate this special day. Today is the International Human rights day. This year the themes is “Our Rights. Our Freedoms. Always” it aims to promote and raise awareness of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights on their 50th anniversary. The two Covenants, together with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, form the International Bill of Human Rights, setting out the fundamental civil, political, cultural, economic, and social rights that are the birth right of all human beings.

Kituo recognizes the importance of the two covenants, so today let’s reunite and celebrate our rights, our freedoms always.
