Since the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) in 1948, human rights have become more acknowledged and accepted as the foundation for good governance and the protection for all people most especially the vulnerable groups. Over time, it has been accepted as a contract between Governments and their peoples. However, the promise of dignity and equality in rights and before the law, has been on assault in many countries including Sudan. Regardless of the global challenges at hand, and Sudan in particular, the rights enshrined in the UDHR provide guidelines for us all to embrace collectively. For that reason, HUDO Centre has been working towards greater knowledge of the universality of the UDHR and the activism associated with it. This has been thorough our actions of monitoring and reporting about the human rights situation in Sudan, advocacy, translating UDHR into some Sudanese spoken languages in which HUDO Centre has achieved translating the UDHR into Moro, Fur, Uduk, Massalit and Lumun languages. On this human rights day 10thDecemebr 2022, we are launching an application (HUDO Centre App) which can be downloaded on smart phones (Android and Apple) where the UDHR in the translated languages, Arabic and English languages can be easily accessed on text format as well as audio version to help those who can hardly read understand the UDHR. We also (as part of this task) have printed the translated languages into booklets and will be distributed to the public across the country including learning institutions and cultural centres in this day of celebration. The struggle for human rights continues.
