Montessori Schools Model UN Event
April 15, 2011 – United Federation for Middle East Peace (“USFMEP”) hosted a significant Model United Nations (“UN”) event for students from the world-renowned Montessori schools in the General Assembly Hall of the UN Headquarters in New York City. Prominent peace activist and UFMEP President, Mrs. Sally (“Salwa”) Kader, hosted the event.
The acclaimed Montessori schools have been lauded around the globe for their unique and exceptional approach to education. USFMEP received outstanding middle and high school students from these schools and educated them on the United Nations system and its procedures, thereby exposing them to a system which they may one day partake in. The successful event was another way to further one of UFMEP’s core objectives to mobilize ordinary members of society, particularly youth, to contribute to the establishment and preservation of lasting world peace.
