What are Social Rights?

Social rights are human rights and have all their characteristics. Social rights are moral, legal, or societal rules and an understanding of what is necessary to fulfill people’s social needs and to promote social inclusion and social solidarity. Social rights concern how people live and work together and the basic necessities of life. They are based on the ideas of equality and guaranteed access to essential social and economic goods, services, and opportunities.

What are Civil Rights?

Civil rights are designed to protect individuals’ freedom from violation by governments, political and social organizations, and individuals. They protect against discrimination in civil and political society, but this protection depends on the state or nation in which the citizen belongs.
What are Economic Rights?

Economic rights protected by the (International Covenant on Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights) ICESCR include the rights to work, to receive a fair wage, safe working conditions, and to form and join trade unions.

What are Cultural Rights?

Cultural Rights are rights related to art and culture, both understood in a large sense. The objective of these rights is to guarantee that people and communities have access to culture and can participate in the culture of their election. Cultural rights are human rights that aim at assuring the enjoyment of culture and its components in conditions of equality, human dignity, and non-discrimination. They are rights related to themes such as language; cultural and artistic production; participation in cultural life; cultural heritage; intellectual property rights; author’s rights; minorities and access to culture, among others.

Women & Children Protection and Development

The necessity of women and child care is due to the following reasons:
(i) Women shoulder a greater part of the household work and toil for long hours.
(ii) Women are exposed to dangerous levels of indoor pollution from the burning of biomass fuel.
(iii) Women are more influenced by environmental degradation than men.
(iv) Women have special problems with regard to water supply and sanitation.
(v) Children are more vulnerable to environmental impacts and child laborers are exposed to hazardous occupations.
Considering the above facts, the objective of women and child welfare is:
(i) To improve the social, economic, health, and nutritional status of women.
(ii) To improve the physical, mental, intellectual, and nutritional status of children.
(iii) To safeguard the constitutional rights of women and children.
(iv) To create awareness regarding different women and child development programs amongst the rural peoples.
