Human Rights educational tools for Congolese mothers

6 April 2009 · Category: Human Rights

BRUSSELS - A group of Congolese mothers from the Prevention and Mediation service of the African community (part of a Belgian humanitarian organization led by Mother Mwadi of Madou), were recently welcomed by Youth for Human Rights International (YHRI) at the premises of the Church of Scientology International European Office for Public Affairs & Human Rights. Their common interest: helping the youth.

The PSAs offer a simple audiovisual illustration of the 30 articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to young people.

It is fundamental that youth benefit from a solid education - something essential for the Congolese mothers. A good education is an important tool for one to develop socially and to integrate into modern society. The mothers, concerned about the future of the young Congolese children, appreciated the educational value of the PSAs produced by YHRI. 

Furthermore, YHRI would like to draw attention to the announcement of Mrs. N. Pillay, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, that 2009 is the international year of human rights learning, aligning perfectly with the purpose of the association.
