"En 2007, en la Escuela Secundaria Azania, escuché hablar a mis compañeros de clase sobre la iniciativa del Club de Paz en la escuela. "¿Paz?" Pregunté, no estoy seguro de por qué estaba intrigado, pero después de una sola reunión quedé demasiado interesado en la idea de asumir un papel activo en la consolidación de la paz". Así es como Yusuph Masanja, Coordinador de la Red Global de Religiones a favor de la Niñez (GNRC por sus siglas en inglés) en Tanzania, describe su primer contacto con los Clubes de Paz. Desde entonces, se ha mantenido en la primera línea abogando por la misión de la GNRC.

The Learning to Live Together Manual is Now Available in Swahili

In June 2016, Arigatou International Geneva, in collaboration with the Global Network of Religions for Children (GNRC) Tanzania, launched the 'Kujifunza Kuishi Pamoja' – the Swahili language version of the Learning to Live Together (LTLT) manual. This new release aims to support the dissemination of the LTLT programme, reaching new communities in their own language and spreading quality ethics education among children, youth, families, schools and communities throughout the Eastern African region.

Swahili is one of the most widely spoken languages in Africa. It serves as a national language for Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda, and it is broadly used in Zanzibar, Mozambique, Malawi, Rwanda, Burundi, Somalia, the Comoro Islands and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. It has more than 11 million native speakers and about 120 million secondary speakers.

A ceremony to officially launch the manual was held on 15 June in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Speakers included Sister Jean Pruitt, GNRC Tanzania Founder, Mr. Charles Mwaniki from the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology of Kenya; Mr. Suchith Abeyewickreme, Representative from Arigatou International Geneva, and Ms. Pauline Haiba Mandisa, LTLT trained teacher from Tana River County, Kenya.  Peace Club members received the manual with appreciation. 

The manual can be seen and downloaded HERE.

“Of course, we are pleased to have this book in Kiswahili, as it will serve as a guide for our children and young people to learn how to coexist, especially at a time when our country continues to witness erosion of peace and harmony.”

Joyce Mdachi

Youth Education Expert and Community Engagement Officer, GNRC - Tanzania.
