“It means a great deal to those who are oppressed to know that they are not alone. Never let anyone tell you that what you are doing is insignificant.”
The 2018 Human Rights Week is possible thanks to Settlement Workers in Schools: Varenya Kuhathaas, Siham Abosita and Yamo Said Ogho who are the main organizers of the activities of the week. Special mention to Malini Singh, Manager of Settlement Services for her great support. Thanks to principals, teachers and staff of Winston Churchill Collegiate Institute, Victoria Park Collegiate Institute, SATEC @ W.A.
