WORLD DIGNITY DAY 17TH OCTOBER 2012 AT KIWOKO MODERN S.S LUWERO

Posted: October 2, 2012 by Reach A Hand, Uganda in Uncategorized

Each of us, children and adults alike, makes choices that shape us and the world around us every day
– in the playground and at work, in our local communities and in global society at large. We have the
ability to enhance our own dignity and that of others through the choices we make  and the way  we
use our resources. By allowing dignity to be a guiding principle for our actions, we can all contribute
to positive global change – at the many different levels of society.
The concept of “dignity” stems from the principle that all human beings have intrinsic worth. This
inalienable  value  belongs  to  all  of  us  simply  by  virtue  of  our  being  human.  Our  dignity  is
strengthened when we feel that our rights and freedom are respected and when we live in a situation
where we can make choices and take actions that enhance our self respect, integrity and humanity.
RAHU  shall  implement  the  activities  of  the  World  Dignity  Day  2012  in  Uganda  in  line  with  the
dignity principles i.e.
1.  Every human being has a right to lead a dignified life.
2.  A dignified life means an opportunity to fulfill one’s potential, which is based on having a
human level of health care, education, income and security.
3.  Dignity means having the freedom to make decisions on one’s life and to be met with respect
for this right.
4.  Dignity should be the basic guiding principle for all actions.
5.  Ultimately, our own dignity is interdependent with the dignity of others.
The aims of conducting the World Dignity Day 2012 in Uganda and in particular to the young people
are as follows.
1.  Young people will  learn  about  the  importance  of  dignity  in  their  own  lives  and  the  lives  of
others.
2.  Young people will learn to express in their own words what dignity means for them and their
lives.
3.  Young people learn  about  how  their  own  dignity  is  mutually  dependent  on  the  dignity  of
others.
4.  Young people will name something they are for and what they want to do during the course of
the next year to strengthen the dignity of others.
