Targeting the grassroots level

With an aim to target this population, UN Women together with the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) hosted a free mini concert yesterday, in collaboration with the Sanap Wantaim Youth.

The public concert was used as a platform to push the message that every person has a role to uphold human rights in the country.

“…to find out what these rights are, what they mean to us and to bring change to the country. A lot of issues we face today are linked to human rights violation, especially violence against women, which we advocate against,” she said. 

Youths encouraged to stand together

Here in the nation’s capital, the Sanap Wantaim Campaign group in collaboration with a number of non-government organizations supported by the National Capital District Commission office commemorated the day at the Waigani Central, ‘Stop N Shop’ car park.

An outdoor stage was set up; alongside tents housing the different NGO’s with the general public invited to visit the stalls and collect informative brochures and pamphlets.

The theme for this year is “Youth building Peace.”
