Martina in Medellin

Saturday, 10. September 2016 - 19:00

Martina has recently returned from Medellin, where she was made an Honorary Member of the Rotary Club for her support of the Mediation Project 'Hagamos Las Paces' - Lets Make Peace.  The project aims to build a culture of peace in a country that has suffered 50 years of civil war, huge internal displacement of people, poverty, and high levels of stress and violence within families.
“You have very truly remarked that if we are to reach real peace in this world and if we are to carry on a real war against war, we shall have to begin with children and if they will grow up in their natural innocence, we won't have the struggle, we won't have to pass fruitless idle resolutions, but we shall go from love to love and peace to peace, until at last all the corners of the world are covered with that peace and love for which, consciously or unconsciously, the whole world is hungering.”
Mahatma Gandhi to Dr. Maria Montessori (London, 1931)
