Scientology Network: How one man helped imbue his country with a culture of human rights | national news
LOS ANGELES, Calif., Jan. 13, 2022 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — In an episode of ‘Voices for Humanity’ on the Scientology Network, Braulio Vargas exposes a hidden side of Costa Rica with a revealing account of the issues plaguing many. of its citizens, from human trafficking to homelessness. His job is to raise awareness of human rights and create change across the country.
“Costa Rica inspired the peace accords that ended the Cold War in Central America, bringing stability to our region,” said Vargas, executive director of Youth for Human Rights Costa Rica. It is a beautiful country, a real paradise. But 22% of the population lives in poverty and victims of human trafficking as young as 5 years old are sold into slavery in the sex trade. “This is the real Costa Rica,” he says, “but there is hope. Human rights are the answer. And my goal is to bring tolerance and peace through education.
Vargas put himself in school to become a lawyer so he could help restore the rights of those for whom they had been denied. But progress has been slow. And when he heard about Youth for Human Rights International, he realized that this program contained the necessary component to improve the quality of life in his country. Youth for Human Rights International educates people about the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. And uninformed people who don’t know their rights are easily abused.
Youth for Human Rights International materials help people of all ages understand the 30 rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Creating a world where human rights are known and protected begins with effective educational programs that cross all cultural and geographic boundaries.
Beginning his work with Youth for Human Rights in 2014, Vargas embarked on a campaign to educate the entire nation about human rights, from farmworkers to children, whether attending school or living in the Street.
His desire to integrate human rights into Costa Rican culture marked when the national football federation joined his team, promoting human rights on a large scale.
Vargas’ work culminated in a milestone. With the help of Youth for Human Rights International and the support of the Church of Scientology Costa Rica Mission, in August 2021, the Costa Rican Legislative Assembly passed a bill mandating human rights education humans in schools across the country.
Inspired by the words of Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard that “human rights must become a fact, not an idealistic dream,” the Church of Scientology and Scientologists support youth for rights rights and make their educational materials available free of charge.
