Make no small plans. They have no magic to stir men's blood, and probably in themselves will not be realized. Make big plans. Aim high in hope and work, knowing that a noble diagram once recorded, can never die.

Children's Peace Initiatives
One of the major initiatives our fund has supported to date is
World Council work with children, which gives youth from diverse
ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds the opportunity to gather to
engage in dialogue in an established, positive framework.
World Council is a round table for higher perspective dialogue
of any matter affecting the well-being of humanity and our
natural world. Its purpose is to resolve each challenge in
discussion, by analyzing its present state, envisioning its
desired state and agreeing to a course of action that will attain
this desired state.
At a World Council table, children tap into a way of being -
with and for each other - rooted in the commonality of our
inner greatness, a greatness that understands what truly matters
to us all, and intuitively responds for the greater good of all.
Children access their greatness and are challenged to take
action with it.
World Council's work with children has become a part of some
major youth initiatives such as Upper Canada College's
"Horizons Summer Program" with inner city school children;
"Leaders Today Volunteer Now Program" with the Metro School
Board; "Turning Point Street Youth" weekly meetings; Beth
Tzedec School graduating youth; "World Youth Centre's Peace
Initiatives"; "Youth In Motion's Top 20 Under 20"
program; "Kosen-rufu Day" celebrations with Soka Gakkai
International and Prime Mentors' Scholarship Student Program.
Colours of Freedom Children's Peace Initiatives address big
picture challenges as well as those closer to home, like
bullying - whether it's children on a playground or terrorists on the world stage.
