Teach children peace and tolerance – S. Korean Ambassador to Uganda

The South Korean Ambassador to Uganda, Park Jong Dae, said that for conflict to be eradicated, a culture of peace and tolerance needs to be inculcated in young school going children. While speaking during the launch of a peace education program at Nakasero Primary School, Dae said that peace can only be attained when unity and tolerance is shared. “Everything starts with peace. If you teach children how to tolerate each other at a tender age, when they grow up, this culture will exhibit itself naturally and we shall have a peaceful society,” he said.

The peace education program was an idea conceived by the Always Be Tolerant Organization (ABETO) and assented to by the Ministry of Education, Science, Technology and Sports (MOESTS), and adopted into the school’s curriculum.
