The ChalkPeace Project

Our Work


Peace Education

We as human beings are war-like in our thought processes. Our communication, words and manner of conveying emotions suggests a predisposition towards violence.

Our Peace Education Resources and Workshops center around the core idea of peace being a process that begins from within: as empathy, respect for diversity or cultivating the value of mutual trust and tolerance.

Gender Equality

If all genders were equally respected, given their due, and were free to enjoy the inherent sovereignty they own over their minds and bodies, no other inequities would hold water.

Our Gender Equality Resources and Workshops center around the core idea of gender being a spectrum, beyond the ambit of the binary, and then couches approaches towards creating equality within that space.

GBV Sensitization

In both peacetime and wartime, the occurrence of gender-violence is a representation of dominance and aggression, and that the bodies are focal points for aggressive discrimination based on gender.

Our GBV Sensitization workshops help create awareness of violence as it exists - both as micro and macro aggression, and as structural and outright violence. We aim to build peaceful spaces through sensitization.

We say NO to Bullying!

We worked with the children at aLphabet, Chennai, where we talked about bullying, ending bullying and creating spaces that are safe for our friends by choosing peace over violence. We had an interesting time understanding personal choice, integrity and freedom, and how everyone is entitled to equal treatment with respect for their diversity. Here are a couple of images from our session today!

Rising above Conflict

In our last session with the children from Classes Nine to Eleven at Akshar Arbol International School, we put our learning on conflict and engagement to use through two simulations, and looked at peaceful ways to settle conflicts, peaceful routes to engage with one another and eventually to create spaces to compromise and prioritize peace.






No more bullying!

In our last session with the children from Classes Six to Eight at Akshar Arbol International School, we talked about the concept of bullying, the concept of consent, and how we can respond to incidents of bullying, and respect each other and our right to consent. It was an intensive series of conversations, activities and sharing, and by the end of the session, we felt like we were the enriched ones of the lot.
