"Our future may lie beyond our vision, but it is not beyond our control."

Robert F. Kennedy


the Robert f. kennedy human rights foundation's vision is a society, in which everybody knows, respects and protects human rights.

We have developed a human rights education program carefully tailored to the Swiss education system. This program is available for free to all educational institutions and schools across all 26 Cantons. Since our launch in 2015, we created the German versions of a school book, a photo exhibit, a theatre play, and the educational online platform Speak Truth To Power.

We've already started to work on the French version of the whole program. Over the coming years we will offer Speak Truth To Power in all four official languages in Switzerland.

As a politically, confessionally, and financially independent foundation under Swiss law, we focus on the advancement of selected programs of the international NGO Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights. We do this together with established local institutions such as the Competence Center for Human Rights at the University of Zurich

Our core tasks are human rights education and the creation of awareness among the public.

SPEAK TRUTH TO POWER

the HUMAN RIGHTS EDUCATION PROGRAM. 

Speak Truth To Power is a human rights education program that strives to create a global citizenry dedicated to the highest standards of justice and equality. Through this program, we teach our children how to stand up against injustice and protect human rights.

Speak Truth To Power consists of a book, an online learning platform, an educational photo exhibit, and a theatre play. Over the coming years, we will further develop all educational material and finally offer the whole program in English, German, Italian, and French across all of Switzerland.   


The Book

The Play "Voices From Beyond The Dark"


Of course we are happy to provide school theatre groups with the script of the play.

Should you be interested to stage the play, then please get in touch with us.  


The Photo Exhibition


This photo exhibit is part of the education program Speak Truth To Power and is usually showcased across Switzerland at schools and educational institutions. The exhibit can also be hosted at galleries, museums, or other appropriate and fitting locations - as long as it remains accessible to students.

The portraits are from Pulitzer Price-winning photograph Eddie Adams. 

If you're interested in this exhibit please get in touch with us.

Let's make human rights self-evident for our children.

Help us to further develop Speak Truth To Power and make the program available to all students in Switzerland, so that human rights become self-evident for all of them - and that they too become protectors of our core values and most basic rights.

Our program is exclusively financed by donations from within Switzerland. We make sure that all your donations fully benefit the program. We do not transfer any funds abroad. Neither do we support any external projects. Should you be interested in a more generous donation, please get in touch with us through the contact form towards the bottom of this website.

All donations are tax-deductible in Switzerland.

Thank you very much for your support!
