Colours of Equality: Day 16

For the last day, in the morning, we set off to Guduvanchery, to conduct a poster competition at Roshni school. After a long ride, we arrived at the school and set up registrations. The children were given topics in relation to Human Rights Day,  themes drawn from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights:   

        You are born free and equal in rights to every other human being.
        Everyone has human rights no matter what your race, skin, colour, sex, language, religion, opinions, family background, social or economic status, birth or nationality.
        Nobody has the right to torture, harm or humiliate you.
        You have a right to be protected and treated equally by the law without discrimination of any kind.
        Each and every person who is legally old enough has the right to marry and have a family.
        Nobody should force you to get married.
        You have the right to have a healthy and comfortable life.
        Mothers and children should receive special care and help.

The children exhibited superior levels of thinking, and it was very hard for the judges to make a decision. There were 3 prizes awarded in each category (Classes 5-7, and 8-10).
