Today International Human Rights Day is being marked throughout the world. The purpose is to raise awareness to the basic human rights that each person has from his birth until his death, and to recall the Declaration of Human Rights that was signed in the United Nations on the 10th December, 1948 (the Universal Declaration of Human Rights). The Declaration states the basic principles of human rights worldwide, including: the right to life, liberty and security of person.
Thanks to the joint efforts that we all make, WIZO fights every day for the human rights, and advancement of children, youth and women in Israel, and gives them the security, and freedom to realize their full potential, equal opportunities in education in order to integrate into society.
Through our 800 facilities, and projects, we improve the lives of hundreds of thousands of Israelis, thereby strengthening Israeli society as a whole.
I am proud to stand at the head of the organization that is devoted to these values!
With warm regards,
Professor Rivka Lazovsky,
World WIZO Executive
