Shanti Children's Trust Mission Statement
  1. To turn the concept of World Peace from a theoretical ideal into a practical, workable reality.

  2. To inspire the world's children and young people to regard themselves as equal members of the only true human race on the planet: humanity.

  3. To encourage in childrens' and young peoples' hearts a sense of universal responsibility, so that they may work not only for themselves, their families, communities and nations but also for the benefit of all humanity.

  4. To encourage the world's children and young people to relate to each other positively through concentrating on the many things they have in common, instead of negatively through the many differences they are taught they have: ethnic, religious, cultural, ideological etc.

  5. To encourage children and young people in the use of peaceful measures to resolve all conflict, such as face to face talks instead of anger, hatred and violence.

  6. To enable children and young people to find greater peace and happiness through learning to respect, care for and ultimately love each other.

  7. To encourage the people of the world to likewise embrace these causes for the sake of their children, so that as each person's life draws to an end, they can ask themselves the question: 'Have I left the world a better place by my lifetime here, for my children, my grandchildren and great grandchildren etc?' and the answer will be a resounding 'Yes!'.
