Educating for a non-violent world
At The Gandhi Experiment, our vision is world peace through education. We are committed to getting to the root causes of violence, hatred, fear and marginalisation. The success of our programs means no more band aid solutions - we are teaching teenagers how to create a more peaceful world.
Your donation will specifically fund the Global Participation - it starts with us! school conferences. You will be contributing to:
❤ teaching non-violence as a choice
❤ modeling how to be a global citizen
❤ teaching conflict resolution and positivity to teens
❤ building relationships with people and the planet
❤ helping teens step up and begin their own journey to a more positive future
✿ bullying and violence
✿ domestic violence
✿ social injustice
✿ moving from apathy to action
✿ the move to more mindful action and a positive world
The $10,000 goal will initially provide for 20 schools across Melbourne and regional Victoria, Australia, India and Indonesia - this year, 2016.
The Global Participation - it starts with us! school conferences have been piloted in Melbourne, Australia, India and Pakistan. The responses from students has been extraordinary. Now we require funds to allow the program to grow and flourish.
The more we raise, the more schools benefit.
The more schools that benefit, the more our global community benefits.

So much fun, great learning - especially from 'The Best Forgiveness Role Play Ever.'
Thanks again for your support. This visit was partly sponsored by the Educating for a non-violent world campaign. So well done to all of you!
If you are looking for some great learning yourself go to: http://thegandhiexperiment.teachable.com The magic is happening in there! :)
The Gandhi Experiment will be traveling to Indonesia for an Asia Pacific Youth Conference in August, where Margaret will be facilitating workshops on conflict resolution and forgiveness. We have now raised enough money to take the Global Participation - it starts with us! student workshop into one local school whilst there.
Please keep spreading the good news so we together we can work with more schools with this empowering learning.
We have raised enough money from sponsors outside of the on-line donations to take Global Participation -it starts with us! into THREE schools!
The Gandhi Experiment has subsequently already contacted three school in Melbourne. We are making the arrangements now!
How quick was that!
Please encourage others to bring peace education and global citizenship into their schools.
