Ethics Education Workshop for Curriculum Development Officers in Kenya

Arigatou International Geneva, under the request of the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD), trained a group of 30 Curriculum Development Officers on the Learning To Live Together (LTLT) Programme. The training took place from 18 to 20 May 2015 at their institute in Nairobi, Kenya.

As the KICD is going in to a curriculum revision process, this was seen also as an opportunity to enhance the capacity, thinking and approaches of the Curriculum Development Officers from the Institute.

Reflections on the panel on “Education to prevent xenophobia, Islamophobia, in South Africa”

By Ilham Nasser, Ph.D.


My trip to Cape Town was an eye opening experience on many fronts. I gained new knowledge on the political atmosphere and transformation in South Africa, it’s socio economic conditions, the education system and interfaith initiatives. The trip was enriching and energizing to someone like me who has roots in the Middle East and has a great amount of despair about what is going on there. The occupation of Palestine, and the wars in Syria, and Yemen are cases in point. I travelled to Cape Town to attend a meeting of the Interfaith Council on Ethics for Children Council a project of Arigatou International. The highlight of my trip was when our host, Dr. Imam Rashied Omar organized a panel presentation and roundtable discussion with educators, and teachers who work in areas of interfaith and intercultural education as part of the Council meeting.

The workshop took place in Cape Town from 29 June to 1 July 2015 and targeted 22 Life Orientation teachers working directly with children and eight subject advisors, who support the teachers at schools and monitor the implementation of the curriculum. Both groups committed to integrate the Learning to Live Together Programme into the Life Orientation (LO) curriculum in order to implement it systematically in schools.
