At Woven Teaching we believe that collaborative partnerships can contribute to a greater impact and better support our mission.
OUR PARTNERS INCLUDE:
The Educators’ Institute for Human Rights (EIHR) is a non-profit staffed by volunteer teachers. It provides training, generates dialogue, develops materials, and builds networks to support educators seeking to rebuild community one classroom at a time. EIHR’s work is international in scope, reaching as far as Cambodia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and Rwanda.
The Genocide Education Project (GenEd) seeks to assist educators in teaching about human rights and genocide, particularly the Armenian Genocide, by developing and distributing instructional materials, providing access to teaching resources, and organizing educational workshops. GenEd was established in order to broaden the general understanding of the history of the Armenian Genocide, in the context of the history of World War I, and as a predecessor of the pattern of genocides that followed.
Founded in 2015 by Rwandan teachers, Peace Education Initiative Rwanda (Peacedu) is engaged in and dedicated to preventing genocide and mass atrocities through education. Peacedu's work is focused on human rights/peace education and genocide studies, with an emphasis on the 1994 Genocide against Tutsi and the Holocaust. By focusing on these topics, Peacedu hopes to build a tolerant society and a future without hatred. Students, teachers, and parents all participate in Peacedu’s programs.
Located near Buffalo, New York, the Summer Institute is a non-denominational, non-partisan program designed to provide in-depth human rights education for high school students and teachers. Whether it is through understanding the history of the Holocaust, contemporary genocide, or human rights issues, the goal of the Institute is to broaden and deepen the knowledge base of its students, so that they may in turn make a difference in their communities, nation, and world.
