Using education and the culture of peace to protect from manipulation

In the context of promoting a culture of peace, non-violence and education designed to eradicate poverty and establish sustainable development, children are protected from all sorts of manipulation and are prepared to take their destiny into their own hands by their acquisition of a critical approach, independent habits of thought and the ability to judge for themselves at a very early age.

Peace involves transforming society from the inside out, in our own lives and across borders.
