On June 3, 4, and 5, the Foundation for Islamic Culture and Religious Tolerance visited a Madrid educational centre to present our project “Words for Fraternity”, in which boys and girls from the first and second grades of ESO will participate.
Following a visit to the classrooms and discussions with the students about the importance of tolerance, respect, and cultural diversity, as well as the goals of FICRT, an activity is proposed to them: write a 500-word story in which they can express the values that FICRT is committed to.
All centre boys and girls who want to participate have one week to write their story about the world we want from FICRT, a world where accepting difference is the first step toward fraternity. Because we believe that the effort for tolerance deserves to be rewarded, 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.
We would like to express our gratitude to the school for its warm welcome. 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 eagerly awaiting your response!
Similarly, FICRT invites any school, institute, or educational centre to contact us in order to collaborate on our project “Words for Fraternity”.
