Based in Karachi, Peace Education Welfare Organization (PEWO) provides support to schools that have shown commitment to creating and maintaining a culture of peace in Pakistan. PEWO has over 100 member schools in Pakistan.
PEWO aims to create a culture of peace in learning environments. Rather than focusing solely on curriculum or teaching resources, they follow Peaceful Schools International’s holistic approach to creating a culture of peace through school-wide activities and initiatives that involve teachers and staff, students, parents and the community at large.
Through affiliation with the Peaceful Schools International, PEWO has been promoting peace education in the schools of Karachi. Dr. Hetty van Gurp of Peaceful Schools International has been supporting PEWO and visited its schools in 2009.
