School Day of Non-violence and Peace

The “School Day of Non-violence and Peace”, founded in 1964, is an initiative of Non-violent and Pacifying Education, celebrated in schools all over the world and in which centres of education, teachers and students of all levels and from all countries are invited to take part.

30th January is the anniversary of the death of Mahatma Gandhi, the great Indian man whose life was based on the principles of truth and non-violence. Mahatma Gandhi is a well known name all over the world. Although he is considered as the spiritual and political leader of India who helped Indians get freedom from the British rule, his philosophies and principles are being admired and followed throughout the world. He avoided any kind of violence all through his life. He dedicated his entire life to the service of humanity and his motherland.
