Universal Declaration of Human Rights

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights holds the Guinness World Record as the most translated document. It exists in more than 500 languages. Yet, far too many people are still unaware of their basic rights as human beings. Record yourself reading an article of the Declaration in your native language, and help us build a multilingual video platform to raise awareness for human rights.
