Rwandan Genocide Survivor Commends Human Rights Education Effort

For Immediate Release

LOS ANGELES/EWORLDWIRE/June 1, 2005 --- Teens in dozens of countries working with Youth for Human Rights International, an educational program adopted by the Church of Scientology International, were publicly honored at a special service at the Church's New York headquarters last weekend.

The group's work in human right's education was commended in a letter from Imaculee Ilibigaze, an executive in the United Nations Development Program. Ilibigaze is a survivor of the Rwandan genocide and now helps the UN evaluate the effectiveness of their programs.

"This is a woman who knows firsthand the disastrous results when people lose respect for one another and then for their rights," said Rev. John Carmichael, who led the service.

Ilibigaze was unable to attend in person so the letter was read and presented by Wilfrid Grey, a respected authority on the United Nations and author of the book, "UN Jigsaw."

The letter read, in part:

"This is to commend you for your vital actions on behalf of human rights education, in particular to make better known the Universal Declaration of Human Rights."

" I can think of no more important action for peace and for aiding the respect we must each have for one another than making these rights known and applied."

"The youth that are part of your organization deserve all possible help and encouragement in their work in their home countries."

"To them and those who help organize them, may they continue and increase their efforts, and may those efforts bear the sweetest fruit possible: peace between individuals, among groups, and among nations."

Hannah Mets, head of the Manhattan branch of Youth for Human Rights International, received the award on the organization's behalf.
