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

Robert F. Kennedy

Human rights are not self-evident.  

Our vision is a society, in which everybody knows, respects and protects human rights.

In order to achieve this vision and as a first step, we have developed a human rights education program carefully tailored to the Swiss education system. This program is available for free. Since our launch in the summer of 2015, we were able to create 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, Italian, and English versions of the whole program. Over the coming years we will make them available step-by-step.  

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 therefore human rights education and the generation of awareness among the public.

SPEAK TRUTH TO POWER

the HUMAN RIGHTS EDUCATION PROGRAM FOR our children. 

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.
