1) Compassion: The children learn that there are children from other parts of the world who have no school, no classroom, and no paper and pencils. 2) Gratitude: The children learn that their own schools, classrooms, teachers, paper and pencils cannot be taken for granted. 3) Hunger for Education: The children learn that where there is no education, there is a hole in life and that by providing schooling for children around the world, they can promote peace through understanding and a better life through knowledge.
4) Philanthropy: The children learn that through their gift of pennies, they can help children on the other side of the world, and that when enough pennies are contributed, they can build those children a school. 5) Tolerance: The children learn that though others may speak different languages and wear different clothes, we are all the same inside. 6) Determination: The children learn from Mr. Mortenson’s example that one person can make a difference and that initial failure can make your goals clearer.
7) Peace: The children learn what peace feels like and thought about what it might be like to live in a world where there is no peace. 8) Pride: The children learn to be proud of the compassionate hearts within themselves, their schools and their communities. They take ownership of their abilities. 9) Knowledge: The children learn about children just like themselves in other parts of the world. 10) Collaboration: The children learned that by working together they can accomplish amazing things.
CAI created what is known as the “Pennies for Peace Toolkit,” which is an online site where the curriculum is available, as well as a Getting Started guide, maps, videos, pictures, templates, and other educational materials.
