Some of the Places We Work

In 2003, we developed a partnership called Facing the Past - Transforming our Future to provide teachers with resources for exploring South Africa’s past.

With our partner, Corrymeela, we help teachers address the violent past and divisions within Northern Irish society.

Through our partnership with Afev, we have developed a program to address contemporary racism, antisemistism, Islamophobia, and other forms of hatred.
