On the Scientology Network: Helping Bring Human Rights to Life in Nepal

Voices for Humanity features human rights activist Rahul KC in this week’s episode, Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET/PT on the Scientology Network

Born and raised during Nepal’s 10-year civil war, Rahul KC grew up surrounded by violence. By the time the war ended in 2006, 19,000 had died and 3,000 men, women and children disappeared, never to be found.

Human rights violations, inherent in the culture from centuries past, persist. These include gender inequality, domestic violence, child marriage and labor, and a system that, despite being officially “abolished,” continues to suppress members of lower castes.

As president of Youth for Human Rights Nepal, Rahul KC is determined to bring human rights and justice to every member of his country. His episode of Voices for Humanity on the Scientology Network tonight at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

Youth for Human Rights International founder and president Mary Shuttleworth brought her organization’s first Human Rights World Educational Tour to Nepal in 2005. Rahul, then only 12, served as her translator. His passion for instilling the 30 rights of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) to the benefit of each member of his country began then and has continued ever since.  The UDHR is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year, adopted by the United Nations on December 10, 1948.

Rahul formed Youth for Human Rights Nepal with two other young human rights activists, and together they have seen to the human rights education of some 50,000 students in the country’s schools, 60,000 Scouts, and 35,000 officers of Nepal’s armed security forces.

They have brought their educational program and their passion for human rights to the prime minister, members of parliament, and the country’s human rights commission, and have helped see to the revision of Nepal’s constitution to ensure effective implementation, protection and promotion of human rights.

Youth for Human Rights International (YHRI) is the sister organization of United for Human Rights, a not-for-profit organization founded to encourage young people to become advocates for tolerance and peace by educating them on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. 

Thanks to the support of the Church of Scientology and Scientologists, Youth for Human Rights International provides its secular program and materials free of charge to anyone wishing to use them to educate others on this vital subject.

Inspired by Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard who stressed that “human rights must be made a fact, not an idealistic dream, Scientology Churches, Missions and groups worldwide promote human rights awareness through education about the UDHR.
