In a spirited celebration of the International Day for Education, the Frugal Empowerment Foundation (FEF) joins in championing the 2024 theme – “Learning for Lasting Peace.” Embracing education as a transformative process, FEF underscores the importance of empowering learners with essential knowledge, values, attitudes, skills, and behaviors that position them as catalysts for peace in their communities.
Mr. Frugal, the visionary founder of FEF, emphasizes that learning for peace is not merely about acquiring academic knowledge but cultivating a holistic understanding that fosters harmony and unity. In a world often marred by conflict, the role of education becomes paramount in shaping individuals who can contribute positively to the collective quest for lasting peace.
As part of its commitment to education and peace-building, FEF is calling for increased educational aid for vulnerable children in Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camps. These children, often affected by the repercussions of crises, deserve access to quality education that not only equips them academically but also instills values and skills necessary for building a peaceful society.
FEF’s celebration of the International Day for Education is a testament to its dedication to transforming lives through education, recognizing the pivotal role it plays in fostering lasting peace. The foundation invites individuals, organizations, and the global community to join hands in supporting educational initiatives that empower children and contribute to a more peaceful and harmonious world.
