One of our most exciting people-to-people peacemaking initiatives is the Pax Populi English Tutoring program in which fluent English speakers engage in conversational English classes with Afghan students via Skype and other electronic media. (This was discussed in the June 2011 post.) To extend this program to new students, we are now looking for additional well qualified tutors who are dedicated to advancing peace through education.

In September 2010, we modestly launched our program with five English speaking tutors and five Afghan students. During the autumn of 2011 we expanded our program to include about 20 English tutors and Afghan learners. A few months ago we first began to extend our work to the Afghan province of Bamiyan and more recently we agreed to begin working with another school in Kabul province. Other schools have also expressed an interest in working with us. However, to expand our services, we now need to recruit additional dedicated peacemakers to serve as conversational English tutors.
