Youth Defender is a joint program of the Network For Human Rights and Justice (NHRJ) and Youth For Pakistan (YFP). Its primary objectives are to promote and protect Human Rights and to help the poor and downtrodden in securing their rights through advocacy, research, legal aid, and financial assistance. Youth Defenders with this leverage bring all national organizations, institutions, and human rights defenders to press for change in policy and practice that promote and implement declarations, covenants, protocols, and communiqués related to Human Rights and justice around the country.
Human Rights are rights inherent to all human beings, regardless the nationality, place of residence, sex, gender, ethnicity, skin color, religion, language, or any other identity status. They are fundamental building blocks of a socially prosperous society. Understanding one's human rights and corresponding responsibilities are important for every citizen of the modern world. At its heart, imparting human rights education to people is a vital part of building a peaceful community. In order to educate citizens on human rights and to inculcate respect for human rights among them, Network For Human Rights and Justice and Youth For Pakistan jointly created Youth Defender.
