Peace School

Thanks to the generous partnership from The Dillon Henry Foundation and a gift from the Pour Les Femmes Fund to finish funding the first wave of construction costs, we have begun construction on the Congo Peace School!

“The world is torn apart, Congo is torn apart, but people coming together, people choosing to work for peace, can repair the world.” Hear from our visionary leader Amani about the impact and importance of your partnership with the people of Congo:

In addition to the Congolese school curriculum, the teachers and staff will be trained by our partner, Amani, to integrate nonviolence and trauma support into the school system, creating education for leadership, to raise up peace leaders, and influence the future of Congo through its youth. Based on Amani’s training in Kingian nonviolence from the University of Rhode Island, the educators will help children and communities understand that, “I am, because you are,”” and “you are, because I am.”

Peace and nonviolence will be a part of the curriculum, with teachers trained to discipline without violence, and to identify and address trauma in children. With class sizes limited to 40 versus the typical 75-80, children will receive more one-on-one attention along with an education to become peaceful leaders with a sense of agency.
