Known as the “Queen of Textiles,” silk is a shimmering fabric that often signifies comfort, elegance, and style. The silk industry is a big business in India, and the government’s Ministry of Textiles supports it through a large agency called the Central Silk Board. The Silk Board recently started offering the Peace Education Program (PEP) to employees, with great results.
The Peace Education Program (PEP) is gaining popularity in the neighboring West African nations of Ivory Coast and Ghana. Volunteers with The Prem Rawat Foundation (TPRF) recently started offering the innovative multimedia course to hundreds of new participants and are taking steps to make it available to many more.
