Just Help

a new grassroots organization that enables volunteers to teach human rights worldwide

Why Human Rights Education?

At Just Help, we believe that the only long-term solution for social issues like hunger, gender inequality, and human trafficking is widespread basic human rights education; without any politics, bias or hidden agendas. To that effect, we are creating an online space where like minded volunteers world-wide can organize, fund, and carry out 100% volunteer run and community funded projects that center around the education and everyday application of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in areas of the world where it's needed most.

For our First Phase, Just Help is preparing an adaptable Human Rights Education curriculum that can be taught quickly and effectively in any language and to any audience. Our initial plan is to implement the curriculum with refugee camps in Greece, Serbia, and Jordan (where human trafficking is spiraling out of control and tension with the local population is high). Eventually, and with your help, we will be able to offer our curriculum on a global scale through an online platform and publicly held workshops and forums.

For our Second Phase, Just Help will seek funding to develop a social platform that enables individuals worldwide to connect with people and organizations in need, design their own custom aid drive or help project, raise the funds they need to carry out the program, document their expenditures with transparency and accountability to the donors, and visually publish their journey, so they can ultimately engage and inspire others to do the same.

Human Rights Education has the potential to eradicate oppression and injustice worldwide and we will actively pursue this goal as we carry out our work in Human Rights Education.

"Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home - so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world. Yet they are the world of the individual person; the neighborhood he lives in; the school or college he attends; the factory, farm, or office where he works. Such are the places where every man, woman, and child seeks equal justice, equal opportunity, equal dignity without discrimination. Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere. Without concerted citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world."
