Peace education for Uganda
A Ugandan non-governmental organisation has launched a peace education syllabus, with the aim of seeing it introduced to school children of all ages.
Topics in the syllabus include learning respect for others, conflict resolution and neighbourliness.
The project is sponsored by the German Konrad Adenauer Foundation and a German state development agency.
The foundation's representative in Uganda said he hoped the syllabus would help create a culture of tolerance leading to peace and development.
Reports from Uganda say the syllabus will be introduced at the start of the next school term.
