What Is Wrists for Rights?

When it comes to problems like the lack of education in human rights, things like that which we can change, to leave without a trace is to never have been there at all.

Wrists for Rights is a student-led organization concerning children’s rights all over the world.
All funds are donated to the organization I’m Colourblind, which promotes education of children’s rights.

All 11 bracelets represent a different right. These rights are based off the 10 most basic articles in the Convention on the Rights of the Child, plus an additional design created by the students of THINK Global School. Collect, trade, and share! These bracelets make a colorful addition to any collection. Make a statement. Start a trend. Help everyone know their rights by having them on your arms. These rights, are literally, in your hands. To learn more about empowering the cause, visit our involvement page to learn how to order your own wristbands.

Wrists for Rights connects, helps, and has projects in each of the countries that THINK Global School travels to, spreading children’s rights wherever TGS goes. Check back in the future for updates as we help spread the word over the course of our travels and studies.
