HUMAN RIGHTS RESEARCH DOCUMENTATION CENTER
Youth across many nations are reached with educational programs teaching them their human rights.
The following are excerpts from letters that give a glimpse of the worldwide response to HURIC’s materials and programs.
“I wish to commend Human Rights Research Documentation Center (HURIC) for their vision and purpose. Teaching people about their human rights and responsibilities according to the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and inspiring them to become advocates for tolerance and peace are essential for communities in East and Southern Africa plus the diaspora. HURIC materials are easy to understand, easy to use and an excellent tool for Human Rights education because the lessons are already prepared and easy to implement in both the formal and informal sectors.
“May God bless this important mission.”

Anglican Archbishop Emeritus of Cape Town
