Human Rights Cell

“Human rights are not a privilege conferred by government. They are every human being’s entitlement by virtue of his humanity.”- Mother Teresa

Human rights have implicit importance as they are considered indispensable for the survival of human beings. According to United Nations Human Rights are rights inherent to all human beings, regardless of race, sex, nationality, ethnicity, language, religion, or any other status. Human rights include the right to life and liberty, freedom from slavery and torture, freedom of opinion and expression, the right to work and education, and many more.  Everyone is entitled to these rights, without discrimination. Keeping these guidelines in the forefront, Salesian College formed the Human Rights Cell to raise awareness among students about the concept of Human Rights and the importance of it in today’s society.
