Human Rights Bench Project

WHO ARE WE

We are a non-profit registered charity providing social services primarily in Surrey, Delta, White Rock and Langley. We believe in helping people help themselves. We believe in collaborating with individuals, businesses, community groups and government to create focused, effective and responsive resources for the community.

We envision a healthy community as a safe and clean environment where we all have a sense of belonging. It is a place where each of us has the opportunity to work and learn and to develop and realize goals that are meaningful and fulfilling.

HUMAN RIGHTS BENCH PROJECT

KEY ISSUE BEING ADDRESSED THROUGH OUR PROJECT

Newcomer families, have moved away from their extended families, often living without inter-generational interactions. These interactions are important to both youth and seniors and leading to a healthy community.

THE PROJECT

Newcomer youth and seniors worked together to design and build a "Human Rights Bench" while engaging in dialogue on human rights. It was mutually agreed to donate and place the bench in a public space as a lasting reminder of why newcomers and youth came together to raise awareness of human rights.
