UDHR Mobile Application Launch (with the Liberation War Museum of Bangladesh)

In collaboration with the Liberation War Museum (LWM) of Bangladesh, AJAR has released a mobile application called the UDHR Flashcards application. The UDHR Flashcards app is a free, quick reference guide to the 30 articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) in Rohingya, Burmese and English languages. The content in the app is written in plain language so everyone from all walks of life could easily learn about their rights.

The app also includes an animated video on the history, content and ongoing significance of the document. It explores the issue of human rights and how a straightforward concept is often complicated when put into practice. The animation is available in Rohingya, Burmese and English.

This app was inspired by passionate refugees across the world eager to learn about their rights and use their voice for justice. In particular, Asia Justice and Rights (AJAR) and the Liberation War Museum (LWM) have been working with Rohingya refugees in the camps of Bangladesh, and have witnessed their determination first hand. Carrying the trauma of the past and the uncertainty of the future, the refugees persist, tirelessly seeking out new ways to improve their circumstances while continuing to honour their culture and faith. As the determination witnessed spans across all levels of education and literacy, the app materials were prepared in audio and written form in Rohingya, Burmese, and English to accommodate a range of users.

The app is available on Google Play Store. Download it on your smartphone here
