Sadaka education resources
Sadaka Education Pack ‘Palestine & Israel – How will there be a Just Peace?'
‘Palestine & Israel – How will there be a Just Peace?' was produced as a joint initiative between Sadaka and the Education for Reconciliation Project.
Education for Reconciliation, a project of the CDETB (formerly CDVEC) Curriculum Development Unit and the Centre for Cross Border Studies, is a cross border programme for Citizenship Education teachers funded by the EU through the PEACE III programme .
The resource, which meets Transition Year requirements in the Republic of Ireland and the Local and Global Citizenship curriculum in Northern Ireland, is intended to support young people in critically exploring injustice and peace building within a framework of Human Rights and International Law. It addresses key issues underlying the origins of the situation and obstacles to bringing about a just peace today. Importantly, the resource enables the student to move from an understanding of the situation into consideration of how that situation might change. It enables students to realise that ordinary people can and do contribute to peace-building and the upholding of human rights.
Through the support of a ‘Mobilising for Justice’ grant from Trócaire a programme of in-service training for teachers will be implemented in the 2013/14 school year.
