Sharing about peace & peace education among volunteers and later making peace education workshops using non formal learning methods for local youth.


Conflicts take place in different countries and areas for many seen and unseen reasons.

Indonesia is a country with huge diveristy of ethnic groups and traditions including migrants who have been living for generations in this country, as well as of religions and faiths. People are always in risk of conflicts especially because of the fact that some of Indonesian politicians use this issue to get their own benefit for keeping their power especially when there is election. Therefore, living peace in diversity is always an important issue in Indonesia.

In cooperation with Al-Ishlah Islamic foundation, GREAT’s local partner for almost 3 years now.  It is an Islamic organization that concerns in peace and global education for all. The foundation provides shelters, middle and high schools for students with low economic background coming from any places in Indonesia.
