The Schools of Peace for Young Children

Many "at-risk" children attend our centres in Europe, Latin America, Asia and Africa. The risks can be many: deviancy, social marginalisation, academic failure and truancy, illiteracy, child labour, carelessness and even abandonment by their families. The very frailty of their families and their surroundings often prevents these children from overcoming these risks unharmed. This is where the work of our Schools of Peace comes in; we solidly and faithfully support the children's growth.

In their educational activities, the Schools of Peace have these goals:

Remedial education

Prevention of deviancy


Tutoring for children with specific difficulties (learning disabilities, behaviour disorders)

Integration of minors with different cultural backgrounds

Health education (accident prevention, dietary education, hygiene)

Emotional support

Religious education

Fostering of socially conscious and globally aware thinking

Greater awareness of peace

Nutrition (wherever necessary)
