New Youth for Human Rights Group In Nepal

Nepalese human rights advocates have formed a group for rights education.

Nepalese human rights advocates have formed a group for rights education.

New York - With war and attendant human right violations dominating the daily news, a group of Nepalese human rights advocates in New York have formed an organization to educate their countrymen, especially, on their rights, to ensure their dignity, freedom, and prosperity.

The group, the "Nepal - USA Forum of Youth for Human Rights" (N.U.F.), elected a journalist, Krishna Prasad Acharya, with human rights experience in Nepal, as President, and Deepak Raj Kafle as Vice President, Shyan Raj Rijal as Secretary, and Arjun Karki as Treasurer.

Youth for Human Rights forms an international network based on educating people about the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a document listing the rights any person has, anywhere, and which countries around the world have agreed to enforce. "Yet when you ask," says Rev. John Carmichael, coordinator of Youth for Human Rights in New York, and an advisor to N.U.F., "hardly anyone can tell you what these rights are. Education is vital to preserve and protect rights."

Mr. Acharya says he got to know Youth for Human Rights at a major conference which included people from 40 countries, and took place at the UN in August. The conference theme was from the works of author and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard, who said, "Human Rights must be made a reality, not an idealistic dream."

He says N.U.F. will educate Nepalese in the United States on the Universal Declaration, and also focus on specific rights, including an upcoming seminar on the rights of Nepalese under US labor and tax laws.
