"Democracy and Human Rights" is a program that aims to spread knowledge about the activities of the United Nations in the field of protection of democracy and human rights. Freedom, respect for the prerogatives of everyone and the principle of periodic and law-abiding elections are the basic elements of effective democracy. In return, it creates a natural environment for the protection and cultivation of just treatment due to every human being. All values guiding civil liberties are included in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which is the main foundation of our program.
The implementation of statutory assumptions of the program assumes the education of young people in the scope of the above mentioned values, through measures such as lectures, programs and activities in social media. In order to increase the reach and reception of our activities, United Nations Association Poland also strives to establish cooperation with institutions and associations that share the objectives of the "Democracy and Human Rights" program.

However, this does not mean that all problems have been resolved - issues such as 'child labor', 'child marriage', social exclusion, living in extreme poverty and lack of access to education continue to affect millions of children worldwide; regardless of the continent.
UNA Poland organized an information campaign 'Stolen Toys', the aim of which was to present this complex issue and show that there is still a lot to be done in matters related to children's rights.
