Birendra Oraon, Director Odisha Chapter, Youth For Human Rights International, USA is igniting a human rights movement in India and especially in Odisha by creating a force of human rights advocates, activists, defenders, ambassadors, and champions.

Birendra Oraon is one such individual who has risen above dire conditions to become a voice for many. Born in a small village in the southeastern state of Odisha, also known for its tribal culture and traditions, Oraon is an Aboriginal Hill Tribe member and the President of Tribal People and Women Welfare Organization and Chairman of United Nations Federation of Organisations in India. His childhood home, which housed a family of 14 people, consisted of a small straw hut without electricity, water or sanitation facilities.

Having been raised to believe his circumstances were preordained and not subject to change or improvement, privation was a way of life for him, drove Oraon into a deep depression. Seeking answers, an internet search led him to the discovery of Youth for Human Rights. This was the first time he learned that he had any human rights at all.

As Oraon educated himself on his 30 inalienable human rights, he discovered that not a single person he spoke to had any knowledge of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). He quickly realized that raising awareness about the UDHR was the key to empower not only himself but also the many millions of Indians who were raised to believe they had no power at all, and made it his mission.

He calls it “Training the Trainers.” With a goal of reaching every household in India, the overall strategy is to create awareness of human rights by not only educating leaders in their basic human rights, but also equipping them with educational materials so that they are able to train others. The initial target has been to train at least 2,500 individuals in each of the 30 districts of Odisha—a total of 75,000 individuals. To reach this goal, Oraon has formed an international platform consisting of NGO’s, government officials, corporations and other stakeholders.

“Training the Trainers” workshops consist of making use of educational materials and media donated by Youth for Human Rights to promulgate the understanding of all 30 Articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to its attendees. The workshops graduates, now “trainers,” pledge themselves to then hold workshops of their own, with a goal of forming at least 50 new trainers themselves, creating what Oraon calls a “chain reaction.”

In addition to implementing and running the “Training the Trainers” workshops, he and his team have distributed over 10,000 booklets defining all 30 Articles of the Declaration of Human Rights, and reached another 80,000 through social media campaigns in Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn & others. He has held countless rallies and campaigns, for only in 2022, he had more then 86 rallies and campaigns with all stakeholders including school children, college youth, Panchayati Raj Elected Representative and run petition drives to promote human rights on a constitutional level as part of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals for 2030.

Condition to reach the grassroots Rural pockets, the Aboriginal Hill Tribes, the poor and destitute, weaker sections like Scheduled Tribes, Scheduled Castes, Other Backward Classes, Socially and Economically Backward Classes, LGBTQI, Widow, Orphan and others Differently Able, Prisoners, Hospitalised Patients and others. For organising any single event his Odisha Chapter is also investing financial contributions of nearly Rs. 25,000/- Twenty-five thousands of rupees only for each event from his own pockets for the events, logistics, transportation, renting a conference hall, chairs on rents, tents, tea and snacks, stationary, Meat or Chicken Biryani as lunches to the concerned participates, executive body members, volunteers and others nearly 50 members in each event to make it a successful event of YHRI.

“We see the very purpose of educating, activating and uniting people to bring human rights awareness on a broad scale. It is a universal truth, and by turning the impossible to possible, we will very soon see the results reflect in each and every household across the globe,” shares Oraon.
