The Geneva Office for
Human Rights Education

Making Human Rights Part of
Every Child’s Education

Who We Are
Headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, the Geneva Office for Human Rights Education (GO-HRE) provides instructional materials at no cost.  We focus on children and youth worldwide, teaching them about their rights as stated in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

The Need
Human rights violations will remain a persistent global problem unless children and youth receive human rights education, inspiring them to care and make the changes necessary to create a better world.

Meeting the Need
Through human rights education, people acquire the knowledge, skills and commitment necessary to make a difference. We call our teaching resources Colega, meaning friend or colleague. Colega’s logo represents children and their books, celebrating Human Rights Education. It suggests our child-centered approach to teaching and learning about Human Rights.

Our Vision
A world where everyone values human rights. A world where people live in peace and dignity with each another.
