Another recognition of his lifelong dedication to advancing peace and equality, Archbishop Desmond Tutu has been awarded the ‘Human Rights Global Treasure’ Award
The award was announced during a virtual programme on International Human Rights Day, Thursday 10 December. The event included a conversation with four former UN High Commissioners for Human Rights – Mary Robinson, Prince Zeid Ra’ad A Hussein, Navi Pillay and Louise Arbour. The award was given by Article3.org and the event was hosted in partnership with Humanity United and the Stupski Foundation, in collaboration with The Philanthropy Workshop and United Nations Human Rights.
“Our patron, the Arch, epitomises all that this wonderful award stands for and we can’t think of a better or more deserving incumbent,” said DTHF COO Prof Linda-Gail Bekker. “We pledge our own mission to support the rights of all as he has taught us to do.”
