Words for Fraternity: FICRT organizes a contest for schoolchildren

On June 3, 4 and 5, the Foundation for Islamic Culture and Religious Tolerance has gone to an educational center in the city of Madrid to present our project “Words for Fraternity”, in which boys and girls from 1st and 2nd of ESO will participate.

After visiting the classrooms and talking with the students about the importance of tolerance, respect and cultural diversity, the objectives of FICRT, an activity is proposed to them: to write a 500-word story in which they can express the values that FICRT is committed to.

All those boys and girls of the center who wish to participate have one week to write their story about the world we want from FICRT, a world where the acceptance of difference is the first step towards fraternity. All stories will be read and evaluated by a committee and those that best reflect and inspire these values will be awarded two prizes by FICRT, because we believe that the effort for tolerance deserves to be rewarded.

From FICRT we would like to thank the generous welcome that the school has given us. And to all those students who are going to participate in our activity, we want to tell you to dare to dream of a more tolerant and fraternal world during these days.

We are looking forward to hearing from you!

Likewise, from FICRT we invite any school, institute or educational center to contact us to jointly develop our project “Words for Fraternity”. If you are responsible or staff of an educational center and you wish to participate in the project “Words for Fraternity”, you can contact us by e-mail: info@ficrt.com.
