Human Rights program activities
India faces many violations of human rights, and more importantly of childrens’s rights. Every day, thousands of Indian children lose their lives because of violations of their most fundamental rights. Moreover, India is also subject to major discrimination attitudes against women, and against tribal populations and untouchables, despite of the cast system abolition in the country.
