Every year since 1948 the world acknowledges December 10th as Human Rights Day. This is a day to reflect on the commitment to ensure all human beings, whatever their nationality, place of residence, sex, national or ethnic origin, color, religion, language, or any other status. Bajalia believes that all humans are equally entitled to human rights without discrimination. These rights are all interrelated, interdependent and indivisible.
Bajalia is committed to upholding the obligation of human rights for women. When it comes to halting human rights violations against women, market creation, and artisan business growth are all game changers. 90% of our artisan workforce is composed of women. There is a direct correlation between more jobs for women and less violence against them.
