Everything that children is taught whether directly or indirectly. As teachers, parents or other friends and family, we all have a duty to show them what is best and to act as role models when around younger generations. Children won’t show prejudice or hatred towards someone of a different race, religion, culture, sexuality or with a disability, unless they are led to believe that it is different. Through our work we plan to normalise all differences between people so that we can all live feeling safe and happy.
“If we are to teach real peace in this world… we shall have to begin with the children.”
– Mahatma Gandhi
