Colombia: Human rights through children's eyes

By Najet Benrabaa

2018 marks the year of the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of United Nations. On this occasion, a German engineer of Iranian decent, Sanaz Razani, traveled through Latin America- beginning in Nicaragua and ending in Colombia - running workshops in high schools and colleges in order to raise awareness and educate the young people about this topic.

Sanaz Razani spent time with the children to explain to them the importance of the 30 articles of human rights which are co-signed by the majority of the countries in the world. After every workshop, the pupils were invited to draw their own interpretation of the human right.

All the collected drawings will be presented during an exhibition in Berlin.

Najet Benrabaa attended several workshops with Colombian children.
