I have been thinking of the latest strikes, killing and burning of schools and i am thinking of joint efforts to start PEACE CLUBS AND ART FOR PEACE in schools, for peace education. I see it as a base for dialogue among student and teachers to come up with solutions from the hidden conflict amongst them and also part which may be from parents back home. we have started several peace clubs and arts in schools both Primary and High Schools which are doing very well and can be shared example for best practise, but we do not have financial resources to multiply that to as many schools as possible but it is a solution. this  comes hand in hand with motivational talks and student teachers and parents meeting. I just visited one of the schools today where we have peace clubs and the challenge i have is to carry on the good work but i have the challenge of finances, but the will is there. it is one of the schools which will take part in the Peace Caravan in September, lets walk the talk support the initiative, and make a difference.
