Teach Peace Build Peace Movement (TPBPM) is an independent, non-partisan and non-profit organization that aims to make every Filipino child and youth a peace builder. TPBPM spearheads a strategic initiative running Peace Education programs for children in conflict and non-conflict zones using a holistic approach.
It is a growing family composed of an expanding network of active and empowered young generations of different faiths, cultures and ethnic groups who are working together as prime movers in building a Culture of Peace. Its guiding principle is derived from the belief that every child has an innate quality of tolerance and unbiasedness and that prejudice is subsequently learned later in life. It is vital that we develop their ability to foster peace in this critical period by using an intergenerational and multi-sectoral approach on peace education, servant leadership and on the implementation of innovative and creative strategies: Music, Arts, Games, Sports and Community Service.
The activities of the Movement promote a Culture of Peace and cultivates knowledge, skills, attitudes, values, and behaviors to have a harmonious relationship with oneself, with others, and with the natural environment. These are designed to develop the values of compassion, service to others, empowerment, equality, respect and understanding – the very foundation of a just and peaceful society where every individual practices peace as a way of life. The approach of the Teach Peace Build Peace Movement is: we have to “Teach Peace to build a Culture of Peace.
