Our first stop is at the Mar Elias Educational Institute. This school serves students from kindergarten through college of many nationalities, ethnicities and belief systems. In this place, students can feel safe in their learning environment. While at MEEI, our journey includes a tour of the campus and classroom visits where we will have our first real conversations We hope to meet with Father Elias Chacour, who is the founder of the institute and an ambassador for non-violence.

Peace, Salaam, Shalom!
