Rotary Adventures in Human Rights

Rotary Adventures in Human Rights

The Rotary Adventures in Human Rights program (RAHR) is a collaborative effort of Rotary District 5550 World Peace Partners with the Canadian Museum for Human Rights (CMHR). 

The mandate and goal of the program is to provide students with an opportunity to explore human rights issues within the CMHR. Although the majority of the program will be held at the museum, there will be visits to various non-governmental organizations and other Winnipeg locations in order to see positive action in progress, in the area of human rights. At the end of the program, RAHR students will have an opportunity to design an action plan that they could implement within their schools. They will also network with other students and agencies, thus increasing their human rights network.
