Summary

Partner with department of education in a pilot program where 900 schoolchildren of Christian and Muslim background will learn skills in peace building and conflict prevention through service-learning

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Mindanao, the second largest island in the Philippines, has a 63% Christian majority and 32% Muslim population resulting in many violent conflicts due to misunderstanding. We are partnering with the 10th education district in the Philippines to start a pilot project for implementing our peace curriculum in the educational program to promote inter-religious understanding and raise schoolchildren as peacemakers, benefiting the 900 student population in the school.

How will this project solve this problem?

Renovate a building in the school to create a library involving students as volunteers, organize trainings for the whole community; Create a student service club; equip the library with educational materials and computers.

Potential Long Term Impact

Our extracurricular program will develop service clubs that will then become the basis for a volunteer and peace movement. The model will be applied to all schools in the 10th district and eventually nationwide, impacting on a national scale.
