The Peace Education Programme has workshops that gives participants the opportunity to reflect on their own humanity and inner resources, focusing on hope, dignity, better choices in life, as well as the shared interests of everyone in society.
South Africa has the third highest crime rate in the world, and it is common in such environments for life to seem hopeless and choose a path of crime. The Peace Education Programme works to break the cycle of crime and punishment, and instead have a society where strength and hope prevails resulting in better choices, more fulfilling lives, and a society that functions well together.
The Prem Rawat Foundation is a good partner to the Tutu Foundation and they have collaborated on projects and have shared objectives. For instance, the ‘Ubuntu Round Tables’ conducted by Archbishop Tutu and ‘Peace Education Program’ by Prem Rawat complement each other well. A core objective of both organisations is to bring people together by focusing more on their similarities rather than differences.
As Desmond Tutu says about Ubuntu “I am because you are and we are all interdependent.”
