UNESCO Youth for Human Rights Project

The Department of Youth and Sports has partnered with the UNESCO National Commission to bring the UNESCO Youth for Human Right Project to Nevis.

The St. Kitts/Nevis National Commission of UNESCO supports the view that educating the youths and raising awareness of human rights via the human rights framework has the potential to effect social change in every segment of our society. There are various determinants that would prevent youths from enjoying their God given human rights, these include but are not limited to: socio-economic background, educational background, the perception of their political affiliation and disabilities. Many youths are not educated about human rights, and as a result.
