Human Rights Day is observed by the international community every year on 10th December. It commemorates the day, in 1948, when the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. This year's Human Rights Day theme relates to the COVID-19 pandemic and focuses on the need to build back better by ensuring Human Rights as central to recovery efforts.
Human rights based approaches are about turning human rights from purely legal instruments into effective policies, practices, and practical realities. Human rights principles and standards provide guidance about what should be done to achieve freedom and dignity for all.
FXB India Suraksha's vision is to create a safe, healthy and productive environment for the vulnerable, especially women and children, through the adoption of rights-based approach in all its grassroots programmes, which areimplemented across the 12 states and 1 UT of India. We see our role as catalysts, facilitating creation of opportunities and capabilities that would ensure a life of dignity for the vulnerable people we work with. We co-create community developmental programmes with them, which best fulfill their needs and empowers them to lead a life of self-reliance and dignity.
This year, which is struck by the fatal COVID-19 pandemic, has seen an alarming rise in the cases of abuse and violence against women and children. It is no surprise today to comprehend the outcomes of the pandemic – it has struck badly at not only the economic well-being, but also the very "protective", "safe" environment within families and communities. FXBIS's initiatives, to create and safe and protected environment for women and children to thrive in, had to be strengthened, re-designed and made appropriate to the combat these unwarranted outcomes in order to #buildbackbetter for the vulnerable sections of community.

Human Trafficking, the third most 'profitable' organised crimes of the world is a malediction to the very essence of human rights. To combat this, FXBIS's anti-trafficking programme - MUKTI (mn.liberation) germinated post the rescue of 51 children from an illegal shelter home in Jaipur, NW India. Of the 51 children, 23 were from the Ukhrul district of Manipur in NE India. The vicious web of human trafficking was evident.
MUKTI launched in 2015 is designed to be an all-inclusive community-driven programme that has, since inception, aimed to empower local communities, institutions, adolescents and district administration and build their capacities to effectively counter human trafficking and address women and children's abuse.
