Imagining Tomorrow Solomons

Imaging Tomorrow Peace Building Education

The Imaging Tomorrow Peace Building Education is a continuation of the UNCEF partnership project between Live & Learn and UNICEF with the aim of heightening awareness among children of practical ways to achieve peace and multi-cultural dialogue in the Solomon Islands.

The project initially targeted 8 primary schools in Guadalcanal and 8 primary schools in Malaita. The project emphasis is on the development of peace building education resource materials and training delivery for teachers and community youths. The peace building education and training for teachers and community youths continued and extends in 4 other provinces; Choiseul, Central, Western and Renbel. So far 50 teachers representing 25 schools each from the four provinces attended and trained on how to use the new peace education materials. Chief education officers from the two provinces support the introduction of peace education curriculum materials in schools.
