Human rights education is an integral part of the right to education, and part of the foundation for a democratic, peaceful society. In Tanzania, UNESCO has supported the development of a Human Rights Education strategy. The strategy involves training and educating a range of stakeholders on human rights, including government representatives, public servants, and youth.=
The strategy aims to strengthen the human rights based approach to planning, monitoring and evaluation in the Ministry of Education and Vocational Training. UNESCO also provides continuous support to advocate and integrate Human Rights Education in schools as well as in non-formal education for youth and adults.
