The PeaceLetters Campaign is a very simple way of showing your commitment to peace, and to build the value through bonds forged with unseen, unknown and unheard communities. It involves a very simple task that’s broken down into the following steps:

letters

1. Choose a community / person / country that you want to send a message to.

2. Take a piece of paper and address the community / person / country and write your message of peace.

3. Take a photograph of the letter and submit it using the form below [click here]!

We will then put it up on this website! A few points to keep in mind, though, are:

1. We do not allow room for letters with content that is hurtful, offensive, discriminatory or defamatory.

2. We reserve the right to refuse to publish content that our team deems hurtful, offensive, discriminatory or defamatory.

3. We take your privacy very seriously, and undertake not to disclose any details you don’t want us to share.

Can children be involved in the peace process through literacy?,

Latest reader comment:

Students, especially children are easily moved when they hear about other children. Parents and teachers should take time to explain to students about world situations. Show them pictures or documentaries so that they will have a better understanding of how they can promote peace. Simple facts of life like living simply, recycling, protecting the environment can be shared with them so that they develop a different kind of maturity – be prepared to serve others than to be served. They will realise that peace is important if you want to improve the condition of the unfortunate. As they grow, they choose careers whereby they will be able to meet the needs of the unfortunate.
