Message from the Chairman
On the 10th anniversary of the 11th September 2001 attacks on the World Trade Centre in New York, we launched the Education Programme in an attempt to create a legacy of hope out of tragedy.
Our research showed that many young people had confused ideas about the events surrounding 9/11.
In partnership with the Institute of Education, University of London, we developed the Education Programme which provides teachers with the resources to educate their students on the events, causes and consequences of the attacks and to promote tolerance and respect for all faiths and religions.
The Education Programme is being taught in schools across the UK, with over 25,000 downloads online to date.
Today, students taking their GCSEs, were not even born on 9/11. It is only through education that we can attempt to prevent a similar atrocity happening again.
Please visit our education programme page, tell your teachers or students about this remarkable new resource and encourage them to teach/study it in your school.
Thank you for your support
