Tibet-Italy-2014Dharamshala: - An Italian delegation of the 'Youth for Human Rights' led by its President, Ms Filorella Cerchiara, recently visited Tibetan communities, including schools and institutions in Dharamshala, India.

The group met top Tibetan officials, including Dr Lobsang Sangay, Sikyong of the Central Tibetan Administration and and representatives from various Tibetan NGOS.

The group is requested the Tibetan schools to add Human Rights as a course in their subject area. The delegation also said they came up with the idea after suggested by Kasur or former Tibetan minister Jetsun Pema.

During a press conference in Dharamshala, on 7 June, Cerchiara said her 'organisation is happy to support the Tibetan communities in exile to educate Tibetan youths about general awareness of basic human rights principles with education materials.'

Italy- based NGO, Youth for Human Rights, has produced a guide to help educators to educate the youth about human rights- which is also available in Tibetan. The organisation aims to create a world where people treat each other with respect and dignity through effective education.

As the organisation states, "many human rights organizations focus on research and advocacy for the victims of abuse. Youth for Human Rights International complements this work by addressing those issues with educational materials and activities."

The Youth for Human Rights Educator's Guide is provided free to teachers and contains lesson plans and enrichment activities to help cultivate an understanding of human rights in the children. The translation of this book into Tibetan has been arranged by the Association Diritti Umanni e le Tolleranza Onlus and contains a foreword by His Holiness The Dalai Lama.
