1-Why Civic Education & Peace building?

  • Contrary to Popular Belief, the Problem isn’t that Students Receive No Civics Education.
  • The problem is the lack access to a quality civic education for children around the world.
  • This is a major contributor to the cycle of extreme poverty and lack for positive peace*, the social peace. 
  • Nearly 90 percent of students take at least one civics class.
  • But too often, factual book learning is not reinforced with experience-based learning opportunities like :  
    • community service,
    • guided debates,
    • critical discussion of current events,
    • and simulations of democratic processes.



2-How to implement “Civic Education & Peace building”?

  • The DAOF is a District pilot project, and intendedfor one Rotary Club or a country group of Rotary Clubs in one country of District 2452.

*Positive peace: Positive peace is defined as justice for all. http://eissr.blogspot.com/2015/07/galtungs-theory-of-positive-peace.html 

** Rotary core values: Service, Fellowship, Diversity, Integrity and Leadership. http://www.rizones21-27.org/rotarys-core-values/
