Right Based Approach

Every woman, man and child is entitled to the human rights prescribed in the Constitution of India. These rights include right to life, liberty and security of person; the right to equality before the law; the right to an adequate standard of living including food, clothing, housing, medical care and social services; the right to free primary education; the right to work and equal pay; the right to freedom of movement, residency and nationality; to freedom of thought, conscience, belief, religion and the right to hold and express opinions without interference.

Government of India has a legal and moral obligation to guarantee and realize these rights for all people. They are the legal ‘duty-bearers’ of these rights and must honor their obligations to their citizens. Likewise all people are ‘rights holders’ who are entitled to the freedom and security set out in the constitution. Govt. of India is not necessarily the only duty-bearer for there are also ‘moral duty bearers’ such as private companies, non-governmental organizations, institutions, community leaders, etc. with responsibilities towards safeguarding and ensuring the rights of individuals or whole communities are upheld.

“To deny any person their human rights is to challenge their very humanity” - Late Nelson Mandela

Shrushti seva samiti has full belief in constitution of India and believe that it’s their moral duty to safeguard and to ensure the rights of individuals or whole communities are upheld. A rights-based approach to community development projects situates human rights at the very centre of its processes and focuses attention on how the realization of all human rights to all people all of the time is essential to combating issues of poverty, injustice, conflict, marginalization, etc. It is a deliberate and mindful move away from giving charity based upon peoples’ needs. Instead it is a move towards developing the capacity of communities and individuals to realize their rights. Furthermore, rights-based approaches aim to strengthen the ability of states to fulfill their obligations as duty-bearers and increase the opportunities for constructive dialogues with rights-holders.
