Commemoration of Universal Human Rights Day 2011

Universal Human Rights Day which falls on the 10th December, was celebrated on the 8th of December 2011 at the ‘SETIK’ Auditorium Kandy, under the theme “Let us promote a society which respects and upholds Human dignity.”

This programmes included some special talks followed by discussions, dialogues and a video presentation. Over 500 participants belong to Tamil and Sinhala Communities were present.
The Chief Guest was Rt. Rev. Dr. Vianney Fernando, the Bishop of Kandy. Buddhist, Hindu and Catholic religious dignitaries, Kandy District Secretary, Government officers, Assistant Superintendent of Police-Kandy and the Co-ordinator of Human Rights Commission-Kandy were among the guests.
This was immensely beneficial in generating greater understanding between the community and Government officers who have the decision making power. Our Human Rights Unit conducted this programme.
