About the Education for Peace Initiative at Prajnya

“Since wars begin in the minds of men, it is there that we must construct the defences of peace.” UNESCO Charter

Public and educational outreach are part of the Prajnya mission and the Education for Peace Initiative (EPI) hosts Prajnya’s pedagogically-oriented projects. Its vision is to teach peace by fostering the learning of skills conducive to communication, healing, tolerance, reconciliation and interaction between people with divergent interests and creating capacity for the resolution of conflict and the creation of a sustainable peace.
