Phnom Penh international school CIA FIRST is holding a football tournament today in recognition of Human Rights Day.
The aim of the tournament is to show that the freedom for all to take part in sport is being promoted and to support the right to education for all, as articulated in Article 26 of the Universal Declaration and in Article 17 of the Children’s Bill of Rights.
The theme for the event is “Rights to Education”. This is the fifth consecutive year CIA FIRST has hosted the Human Rights Soccer Tournament on Human Rights Day.
This year 30 teams from 10 schools and organisations are taking part in this special event for U10, U12, U14 and U17 players. This year’s tournament will also feature an all girls’ team.
