message of peace
Following Prem Rawat’s visit to São Paulo in April 2012, Eloísa de Sousa Arruda, Secretary of Justice of the state (of São Paulo) has been encouraging the implementation of TPRF’s Peace Education Program (PEP) at Civic Centers for Integration of Citizens (CIC) in impoverished areas of the city. These Civic Centers are not just social centers; they provide services for the community such as education and assistance with legal matters, documentation, and contracts.
Watch Peace on the Outside and follow former inmates and students of The Peace Education Program (PEP) as they begin over again as free men. Watch the video here.
The Peace Education Program (PEP) has been popular at the Dominguez State Jail in San Antonio, Texas for several years. Our first video from the PEP program at the jail is Peace on the Inside, which shows the impact PEP or “Inner Peace Class,” has made on the participants.
TPRF has just announced its contribution to the global effort in support of World Peace Day—a bold and exciting campaign called Peace for People 2013.
World Peace Day is celebrated on September 21st. That event is large and international in nature, and TPRF has participated in it in past years in a variety of ways. This year the Foundation's contribution will be Peace for People 2013, an opportunity to share Prem Rawat’s Message of Peace in the context and the spirit of this global focus on peace.
On June 3rd, 2013 Prem Rawat was invited to participate in a Peace Forum in Ibarra, Ecuador, inspired by the introduction of the Peace Education Program to the unlikely combination of gang members and educators. Dr. Angel Castillo, District Director of Education, welcomed Prem Rawat to the forum at the Ajavi Hotel in Ibarra.
