Arigatou International, an international NGO working for the rights and wellbeing of children, is organising its first International Train the Trainers course on how to develop and conduct training programmes on the use of the Learning to Live Together, an Intercultural and Interfaith Programme for Ethics Education.
The Learning to Live Together manual is the key resource material developed by Arigatou International to advance its ethics education initiative for children. It has been developed as a resource for promoting ethics and values for children, both in religious and secular educational contexts.
Since its launch in 2008, the manual has been disseminated and promoted through regional training workshops organised by the Global Network of Religions for Children (GNRC), and through promotional events arranged in cooperation with UNICEF and UNESCO.
Educators, teachers, parents, youth leaders, religious and community leaders, NGO and UN staff have learned about the manualâ€™s intercultural and interfaith programme for ethics education and began using this resource in their work towards the implementation of childrenâ€™s rights.
The overall goal of this International Train the Trainers course is to strengthen the capacity of individuals to develop and conduct training programmes on the use of the Learning to Live Together manual in various contexts.
