In Line With the RPEP
Peace Clubs from various schools will come together in August where students can take part a large conference and compete in songs, poems, drama, and drawing to win prizes provided by CARSA. Up to 50 Peace Club members from each school represent their club in attending this Peace Conference. After the competitions, Peace Club members will continue to develop ways such as debates and outreach that will spread the message of peace in their schools and communities. Peace Club members will even travel outside their immediate community to present to others.
Peace Education fits within the Rwandan Education Policy the Rwandan Peace Education Program (RPEP). This program is meant to incorporate Peace Education into the entire curriculum to ensure the promotion of social cohesion, positive values, empathy, and critical thinking to build a more peaceful society starting from the youth. CARSA and the Peace Clubs can serve as a foundation to prepare the ground for learners and teachers to receive Peace Education in their school. These clubs and activities give learners a practical platform to exchange ideas concerning peace and unity and then to spread these ideas to the greater community.
