SAHRC Gauteng and Cliffe Dekker hosts Human rights Day Poster Competition

The SAHRC's Gauteng Provincial Office and Cliffe Dekker Hofmeyr Inc hosted a Human Rights Day Celebration to commemorate and celebrate Human Rights Day with Ikaneng Primary School.
The school's learners were given the task to "Design a Human Rights Logo" based on their understanding of human rights and the responsibilities accompanying them. The Design a Human Rights Logo initiative celebrates human rights month by creating human rights awareness at the primary school level and serves as an edutainment tool that gets young people to actively participate in the creation of a positive human rights culture. By involving young people in the reimagining and redesigning how human rights should look, we hope to inspire them to be part of communities, organizations, and institutions that uphold the rights of all who live in South Africa.

Our overall winners were the Grade 7s who showed creativity and understanding of the role of the Commission.
