Human rights are moral principles or norms, which describe certain standards of human behavior, and are regularly protected as legal rights in municipal and international law.They are commonly understood as inalienable fundamental rights "to which a person is inherently entitled simply because she or he is a human being," and which are "inherent in all human beings"regardless of their nation, location, language, religion, ethnic origin or any other status. They are applicable everywhere and at every time in the sense of being universal,and they are egalitarian in the sense of being the same for everyone. They require empathy and the rule of law and impose an obligation on persons to respect the human rights of others. They should not be taken away except as a result of due process based on specific circumstances; for example, human rights may include freedom from unlawful imprisonment, torture, and execution.Promoting respect for human rights is one of the core purpose of the Love Uganda Foundation; and defines its identity as an organization for people around Uganda and the world at large. Communities however, have the primary responsibility for protecting human rights of their populations.
Volunteering under our Human Rights Program involves; people to get aware of their rights like food, water, education, expression, shelter and freedom of worship among others; so that everyone enjoys his or her rights. This can be done through community sensitization, workshops, mobilization and community awareness.
