Adopt a Classroom
Adopt a Classroom is a component of the Development for Peace in Sulu program. This project is focused in Jolo, Sulu, the most impoverished area in the Philippines, located in Muslim Mindanao and threatened by al-Qaeda terrorists. Sulu ranks at the bottom in all Southeast Asian categories of health, education, employment and violence. It leads the Philippines in infant and child mortality and has a 65 percent school drop-out rate — by the 6th grade. Through the people-to-people Adopt a Classroom project, you can provide basic classroom materials to impoverished public schools. This helps to deter violence and terrorism through building hope, starting with youth.
Community Service Scholarship
AAI’s unique community service scholarships provide opportunities for Muslim high school and college students who come from impoverished and violence plagued communities to turn their lives around. To earn the scholarship, students must perfom community service in overcrowded elementary schools or at local hospitals. We build bridges between religions and cultures through educational partnerships. AAI partners include the Jesuit Ateneo University system and Notre Dame College of Jolo.
Music For Peace
Music for Peace brings music and arts into public schools located on the front line of terror and religious conflict. As part of AAI’s international Development for Peace program, music and arts builds bridges for peace and inter-cultural understanding.
