The Consortium's Mission

The Friendship Through Education Consortium is committed to creating opportunities that facilitate online and offline interactions between the youth of the world, inside and outside of classrooms, in order to build a culture of peace in which the dignity and rights of all human beings are respected.

We launch this effort with a commitment for expanded links between U.S. schools and those in Islamic countries, including Egypt, Indonesia, Qatar, Pakistan, Turkey, Bahrain and Afghan refugee camps. We will provide information on how students can link students through letters, email, art, collaborative projects and exchanges to foster mutual respect and greater understanding of cultural differences.

This Consortium seeks to be inclusive in order to provide as complete information as possible on quality interaction among students worldwide. For information on how additional organizations can be involved in the Consortium, contact us.
