The understanding and grasp of young people about the meaning of human rights and its principles is relatively low. This is mainly due to the lack of programs regarding human rights education. Because of this many of our nation’s youth grow up with a lack of understanding about the rights that they as individuals are entitled to and which the state has the obligation to protect. In other words, without human rights education the people will not have the capacity to assert their rights in the face of the State’s failure to its obligation to respect, protect, and fulfill these rights.

As a response to this situation, Youth for Rights (Y4R) was organized by Task Force Detainees of the Philippines (TFDP), a mission partner of the Association of Major Religious Superiors of the Philippines (AMRSP). It is a network of student leaders, individuals, and youth organizations that seek to popularize human rights principles embodied in the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) and train them with the necessary skills that would help them to assert and defend their rights.

Youth for Rights (Y4R) as TFDP’s newest project was conceptualized upon the idea that as leaders of tomorrow, today’s youth must be made aware of human rights through education and skills development.

Based on this, TFDP sees Y4R primarily as a network that will help to provide easy-to-understand human rights education to adults and children so they are able to grasp what fundamental human rights are as aligned with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), and to effectively combat violations of human rights.
