“If a country doesn’t recognize minority rights and human rights, including women’s rights, you will not have the kind of stability and prosperity that is possible.” -Hillary Clinton, former United States secretary of state 

The Civil Rights Project is a series of educational workshops for male and female secondary school students that aim to improve the treatment of marginalized groups —such as girls and women, lower castes and religious minorities — in the village.

The workshops, which were developed by an IPHD intern in 2016, ask youth to critically evaluate how their attitudes, biases and actions contribute to inequality. Lessons weave in elements of history, politics and philosophy to build a dialogue among young people about how to treat their fellow village members with respect and dignity.
