Human Rights came into global discourse after the United Nations passed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948. It was the first international recognition that all humans inherently have certain rights.
Over the past years, human rights have got mainstreamed into the UN's work, and various organizations and agencies have adopted the human rights-based approach. This approach sees the poor as actors and holders of their rights. That means that the focus is not on the beneficiaries of the charity - The focus is more on demanding rights for people, shifting from a charity approach for the poor of the world.
It is about human rights that apply to everyone. Whether poor or rich, no matter on which continent one lives, no matter which religion, skin color, or gender one belongs. Human rights are for everyone. Let us use the right strategies to help demand them long-term.
