Education for Peace (EFP) is an innovative whole school program that creates violence-free and peaceful school environments conducive to meeting the emotional, social, and intellectual needs of diverse school populations. Through creating a peaceful school environment characterized by unity in diversity, EFP harnesses the freeing and healing properties of unity to meet the manifold needs of the increasingly diverse populations in different cultural settings. The emphasis on peace is based on the fact that peace and education are inseparable aspects of civilization. No civilization is truly progressive without education and no education system is truly civilizing unless it is based on the universal principles of peace.
