St. Andrew’s School Jotsoma, Kohima students taking oath to strive towards bringing unity and peace.

 

With an aim to encourage positive thinking and spread peace from our heart, Peace Channel conducted capacity building programme for the Peace Club members at St. Andrew’s School Jotsoma, Kohima on June 11. Altogether 29 members along with the teacher animator Thepfulhoubi Thomas actively participated for the programme.

 

Speaking on the occasion, Peace Activist Susan Kulnu stated that Unity in diversity plays a big role in bringing about peace in our life. Every nation has a certain set of cultures, languages, beliefs and traditions which comprise a substantial part of the history and patrimony of the family and of the society. Culture is the essence of personal and national identity, she said.

 

She further explained that the characteristics of ‘Culture of Peace’ should be practiced. Among others, it include Understanding, tolerance and solidarity; equality between women and men; democratic participation; education for a cultural of peace; free flow of information and knowledge; sustainable economic and social development; and respect for all human rights.

 

She also noted that multiculturalism can promote the awareness of the oneness of humanity and the consciousness of common values and norms in various cultures and it is imperative to build an effective multicultural system, at regional and global levels.

 

The student were invited to take an oath stating that they would strive towards bringing unity and peace starting within the family and the society at large.
