Today is International Human Rights Day, and in honor of that, I’d like to share a bit about a group that means something to me.
Humanium is one of the few pro bono clients I’ve held over from my early days testing the waters of translation—and for good reason. This organization focuses its efforts specifically on improving the level of respect for children’s rights around the world. Their targeted projects are improving living conditions for children in several Indian villages. Broader-view initiatives spread the word about how children are treated and what you can do to improve their lives around the world.
Very recently, Humanium updated its map categorizing the state of children’s rights on all continents. (You’ll see some of my translations in the country-specific descriptions.) Go check out the site and read a bit more about human rights and the younger population. It’s certainly eye-opening.
