Scientology: How We Help—Turning the Tide on School Bullying in Taiwan

New survey shows significant decrease in Taiwan school bullying coinciding with human rights education program by Scientology-supported group.

Students in Kaohsiung elementary schools learn about their rights at a Youth for Human Rights Taiwan presentation.

Results of a  survey released March 18  indicate a significant decrease in school bullying coincides with educational activities carried out in Taiwan schools by Youth for Human Rights Taiwan since 2004.

Supported by the Church of Scientology in Taiwan, Youth for Human Rights  is changing attitudes about bullying through human rights seminars and presentations in elementary and middle schools, lectures in universities and petition drives across the country. To date, these presentations have reached more than 100,000 students in 659 schools.

In March 2013, the  Church of Scientology  in Taiwan hosted the 10th annual Youth for Human Rights International World Educational Tour and the first Asian Human Rights Youth Summit in Taipei, where Taiwanese youth networked with young delegates from nine other countries, learning new skills to advance their regional human rights initiatives.

The YHR Taiwan team aligns its activities with human rights events commonly observed throughout the world. On the International Day of Tolerance, celebrated annually on November 16, YHRI holds street events and lectures. It organizes Human Rights Walks, public events and school presentations on December 10, International Human Rights Day.

In recognition of the dedication and effectiveness of these volunteers, the Minister of Education has appointed the Taiwan Youth for Human Rights Executive Director, Fenny Lee, as a member of Taiwan’s Human Rights Education Council.

Scientologists on five continents engage in collaborative efforts with government agencies and nongovernmental organizations to bring about broad-scale awareness and implementation of the 1948 United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the world’s premier human rights document.

Human rights education presentations by Youth for Human Rights Taiwan teach junior high school students about bullying and how to prevent it.

Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard wrote, “Human rights must be made a fact, not an idealistic dream,” and the Scientology religion is based on the principles of human rights. The Code of a Scientologist calls on all members of the religion to dedicate themselves “to support true humanitarian endeavors in the fields of human rights.”

Developed by L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology is a religion that offers a precise path leading to a complete and certain understanding of one’s true spiritual nature and one’s relationship to self, family, groups, Mankind, all life forms, the material universe, the spiritual universe and the Supreme Being. Scientology addresses the spirit—not the body or mind—and believes that Man is far more than a product of his environment, or his genes.
