Our mission is to promote peace through education.
Education imparts knowledge, skills, values and attitudes that are important for the social, economic and political development for any country. Our mission is to ensure that every child and youth from a disadvantaged background acquire the knowledge and skills needed to promote peace efforts through education for sustainable development, human rights, gender equality, promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence, global citizenship and appreciation of cultural diversity.
We believe that peace and education go hand-in-hand. Where there is no education there is no peace. We want to use education to revolutionise peace efforts and bring an end to war conflicts, gender violence, social exclusion, and global inequality.
We strongly believe that education is the only solution for world peace. And in the words of Kofi Annan, “Education is, quite simply peace-building by another name. It is the most effective form of defense-spending there is.”
“Education breeds confidence. Confidence breeds hope. Hope breeds peace.” – Confucius
Our objectives are to:
Strategy: Create access to equitable quality education through investment in human development and providing educational opportunities.
Policy: Use education to revolutionize peace efforts by creating necessary policies and strategies that address issues related to structural violence, marginalization, and social exclusion.
Advocacy: Strengthen the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples through advocacy efforts.
