African Proverb – used as the motto for CAI
“Pennies for Peace educates children about the world beyond their experience and shows them that they can make a positive impact on a global scale, one penny at a time.
Our best hope for a peaceful and prosperous world lies in the education of all the world’s children. Through cross-cultural understanding and a solution-oriented approach, Pennies for Peace encourages children, ultimately our future leaders, to be active participants in the creation of global peace.”
I particularly like the focus of cross-cultural understanding and engaging them early. These grass roots efforts can have global impact in an amazing and powerful way. Thank you Greg Mortenson for your vision.
