On May 9th, the Jabalia office of Al Mezan Center for Human Rights Office received a group of students which consisted of members of the school parliament of Beit Hanoun Middle School and a number of teachers.
The aim of the visit was to reinforce cooperation and join efforts to spread fundamental concepts of Human Rights with the assistance of Al Mezan and the Human Rights Program supervised by UNRWA’s Department of Education.
Al Mezan's librarian, Ms.
Tahani Abdul Rahman welcomed the delegation and spoke of aims and description of activities carried out by Al Mezan, the most important aim being that of guaranteeing the protection and reinforcement of human rights in the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT).
The delegation visited the library, praised Al Mezan's efforts and emphasized that other NGOs and governmental institutions, mainly the Ministry of Education, should take Al Mezan as an example in establishing such rich human rights reference points in order to spread knowledge and provide assistance to researchers, especially in northern Gaza where there is a severe lack of cultural activities and libraries.
