Our Understanding  About Human Rights:


Human rights are the rights a person has simply because he or she is a human being. Human rights are held by all persons equally, universally, and forever. Human rights are inalienable: you cannot lose these rights any more than you can cease being a human being. Human rights are indivisible: you cannot be denied a right because it is "less important" or "non-essential." Human rights are interdependent: all human rights are part of a complementary framework. For example, your ability to participate in your government is directly affected by your right to express yourself, to get an education, and even to obtain the necessities of life.

Another definition for human rights is those basic standards without which people cannot live in dignity. To violate someone's human rights is to treat that person as though she or he were not a human being. To advocate human rights is to demand that the human dignity of all people be respected. In claiming these human rights, everyone also accepts the responsibility not to infringe on the rights of others and to support those whose rights are abused or denied.

Human rights are both inspirational and practical. Human rights principles hold up the vision of a free, just, and peaceful world and set minimum standards for how individuals and institutions everywhere should treat people. Human rights also empower people with a framework for action.


  • Women, children, religious and ethnic minorities are among the groups that are most vulnerable to human rights abuses.
  • Poor people’s inability to access the justice system is blatantly obvious. Keeping this in mind, the organizations missions in rural Bangladesh also play a role in awareness rising among the vulnerable groups.
  • Women and children suffer severely from the effects of the violation of rights, due to factors such as their status in society and misinterpretation of religion.
  • PHRAS always emphasizes the active participation of the grassroots community. PHRAS realizes that empowerment is the precondition to establish human rights, which is based on a recognition and faith in peoples own power and resources.
