A new video on shows what Scientology Tools for Life mean to those who have completed the courses and how they have changed their lives.

"When I started learning these 19 Tools for Life Courses, I couldn't stop," says a Johannesburg school principal in a new video on the Scientology website. "They are related to my everyday life and living." Featured in a video on the Scientology website in the new interactive timeline, 20/21—A Look Back and a Look Ahead, she is one of more than 11,500 people in South Africa who have taken Scientology Tools for Life courses since the pandemic began.

After completing all 19 free courses on the Scientology website, the principal was moved to tears. Now she can help people—people she doesn't even know yet.

Before the Scientology Tools for Life courses, a teacher from Tembisa, South Africa, couldn't handle people who were angry and she lacked the confidence to deal with her pupils. The courses have made a huge difference in her life and work.

A reserve police officer from Mmametlhake finds it much easier now to communicate. A woman from Ekurhuleni who never considered helping others before is now volunteering every day. 

A bishop from Pretoria sees this knowledge as the key to eradicating poverty and hunger. A pastor from Mmametlhake says the Scientology courses completely changed how she counsels her congregation. Now she can listen and understand, and she has a spiritual toolkit to empower them. A pastor from Pretoria says, "These courses helped me be a better person."

The textbook of the Volunteer Minister is the Scientology Handbook, with each Tool for Life course covering one chapter. A minister from Bloemfontein who has learned these tools says the Scientology Handbook is so powerful, he calls it "the Book of Life."

This video is part of a new interactive timeline showing the Church's global pandemic response, illustrated by more than 1,200 images and 14 videos at "20/21: A Look Behind & A Look Ahead." It shows how Scientology Volunteer Ministers reached out with help in the face of this global catastrophe. The interactive timeline including all videos may be viewed in 17 languages.

The Founder of the Scientology religion is L. Ron Hubbard and Mr. David Miscavige is the religion's ecclesiastical leader. The Church of Scientology Volunteer Ministers program is a religious social service created by Mr. Hubbard in the mid-1970s. It constitutes one of the world's largest independent relief forces.
