Youth Assembly for Human Rights (YAHR) is a youth organization with the purpose to educate youth in human rights so they become valuable advocates for tolerance and peace. It was formed because it was realized that very little is being done to teach human rights to young people in Pakistan. In support of the United Nations Decade for Human Rights Education, this youth organization is working on a human rights campaign to bring the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to youth through essay and art contests and by providing materials for students and teaching guides for schools.
