PSI in Pakistan

No Name Calling Week - PakistanPSI is very excited to announce that we have received funding from the United States Institute of Peace (USIP) to support our work with schools in Pakistan. We will be building on the excellent work already taking place in Pakistan, working with a small number of pilot schools to help them build peace in their schools and communities over the next two years.

We will also be creating a Journey to a Peaceful School Guidebook as part of this project. The guidebook will be especially targeted towards schools in developing countries and will act as an ongoing resource and guide for member schools.
