The following additional information has been provided by Nina Meyerhof about the Apeadu Children's Peace Center in Ghana:


Dr. Nina  Meyerhof, Children of the Earth, and Chief  Nana Osei Boakye Yiadom II of Aburi, Ghana, and Audrey Kitagawa, Advisor  to the Office of the Special Representative of the Secretary General for Children and Armed Conflict are committed to the knowledge that young people, when given the potential opportunity with spiritual guidance for ethical standards and correct information, can and will create a better for themselves and others..


International Leadership Program-- 50 international youth to gather with 25 local youth to discuss global issues and create action projects.

Ghana Teacher Peace Education Program---to follow Leadership Program and invited 25 teachers from the local schools for a  training.

Local Health Program for Youth- experts to work with youth on prevention and care taking on health issues in particular HIV -Aids. This is to start summer of 2003.

Youth Skill Building Program- to offer training for young people in areas that support the elimination of poverty--such as tie-dye, batik, bead making, farming, carpentry, sewing, computer skills and more. This has begun in the Liberian refuge camp.

African Youth Congresses-- allowing other organizations to offer programs and conferences at the site.

Life Skills Program for self-help--- micro-lending, building businesses, banking and lending.

Refugee Education and Human Rights Advocacy workshops-- for refugees, local youth and other interested young people.

Women as Leaders---empowerment workshops for women and girl children

Youth as Peacemakers -- Opatafo Training--peace-making, peace-building and peace -keeping skills workshops to begin in the local community and the refuge camp - 2004.

In the creation of this Center, there is the hope that it will not stand alone, but as a blueprint and pilot for other Centers of peace education. The Apeadu Peace Center will serve as an example of youth in support of learning together and building a culture of peace and non-violence. Africa calls us to fulfill a moral obligation if we are to recognize that we are a global society and that all of life is interdependent..

Children of the Earth is the official organization sponsoring this endeavor COE is a 501.3.C and is a NGO organization recognized by the United Nations for its work with young people around the world.

As PhD student in a Faculty of Education in Brazil, I find very important the discussion on the contribution of education to a peaceful world.

I think peace curriculum is possible since there is respect for cultural diversity, such as ethnical, religious, race, sex, gender and others in school's curricular and pedagogical practices as a means of building/developing values of tolerance and respect. There should be space in curriculum for students's voices, experiences and contributions. This way they will feel respectable and will also learn to respect the others.

Education may contribute a lot since it may help children and youth to become sensitive toward the importance of promoting peace among individuals, groups and nations.

During the Asian Educators Symposium, we found out that Peace Education is still not part of the school curriculum in most countries. However, the participating teachers have been incorporating peace education in their teaching subjects, such as English, social studies, and character education. We all agreed that love and the will to nurture peace in children are the most important basis for peace education. Even if peace education is not a part of the curriculum, peace can be taught through any subject. Whatever you are teaching, if it comes from the heart, then it will touch the minds of children.
