How Can I help
Montessori Community for Peace
“Establishing lasting peace is the work of education, all politics can do is keep us out of war.”
We are very saddened by the events happening in the world right now.
Maria Montessori wrote: “Establishing lasting peace is the work of education, all politics can do is keep us out of war.”
As educators and as members of the global Montessori community, we feel the strong urge to help. And we will do this by joining our efforts, as one big family.
Having a truly intercultural team at Montessori Institute Prague, we stand on the side of the child and humanity, regardless of origin, nationality, country, religion, or ethnicity. We stand on the side of lasting peace for all.
We are all a big worldwide family living on this beautiful planet called Earth, where each one of us truly belongs.
We are getting so many messages from many parts of the world. People want to help!
And we would like to be in this too.
With love and hope for us all,
Team of Montessori Institute Prague
