Educating for Peace

 

At Mangoes to Share We place a lot of focus on Education and recognize that Education leads to peace by boosting confidence & hope, promoting independent thinking, inspiring problem solving skills, and building communication skills by opening doors, by reducing poverty, and by increasing conscious political involvement. Education reduces support of terrorism & militancy, builds empathy & tolerance and cultivates respect.

Not all education is created equal though. We believe in “hands-on” education, which teaches life skills and promotes unity instead of separation. We believe in education that teaches tolerance and respect for different cultures, worldviews and the environment. And that is WHY we want to focus on projects promoting this type of educational approach.

Fortunately We are not the only ones who think this way!!!

Here are some resources on the topic for more information on the possibilities of achieving world peace through education:
