Human Rights Day Celebration in Ndugulu, Kenya

Last December, members of Kenya's Ogiek community gathered in the village of Ndugulu to celebrate and commemorate Human Rights Day.  Human Rights Day falls on 10 December and marks the anniversary of the UN General Assembly's adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948. Thousands of Ogiek attended the event, which included speeches and the distribution of Ogiek-language literatrure about the Universal Declaration. Below are photos from the event taken by the Ogiek Peoples Development Program, one of MRG's partners in Kenya.  To learn more about the Ogiek Peoples Development Program, visit their website at  www.ogiekpeople.org.
