A Proud Endorser

by Sphe Masondo

Art for humanity as an organisation that deals with artistic freedom and artistic expression through art and advocates for human rights issues in South Africa and internationally celebrates and salutes leaders and endorsers such as Kofi Annan who serve with interests of human rights.

Kofi Annan’s support and endorsement is noted greatly on the Universal Declaration of human Rights International Print Portfolio where Annan and Dalai Lama applaud the work done by artists in an attempt to promote Human rights. I quote Kofi Annan when he writes “we pay tribute to the minds of those who conceived of these human rights and to the memory of those who died for them” therefore he carries on by writing,

I applaud this effort to bring all "The Articles of The Declaration to life in graphic form". For this anniversary is a time for all of us who enjoy human rights to imagine life without them-and how hard we would fight to retain them. It is a time for those who are still denied their human rights to dream again of asserting them, and to know that their dream is our dream-the dream of human rights for all.”

Human Rights play an important role in society in any form that it’s practiced section 16 0f the South African Constitution states that: freedom of artistic creativity

I highlight C-freedom of artistic creativity, because today I celebrate on of the elders who support the work done by Art for Humanity, Kofi Annan, former Secretary-General of the United Nations and Nobel Peace Prize laureate
