Initiative for Peace (IfP)
As one of the cornerstones of UWC South East Asia's (UWCSEA) peacebuilding curriculum, the Initiative for Peace (IfP) Programme is a definitive experience for many students and teachers alike. As part of our mission-inspired commitment to using education as a force for peace, we have taken our flagship programme and developed the 'IfP Toolkit' to share with the world as part of our 50th-anniversary impact programme.
The toolkit gives educators, students and organisations and groups working to create peace, the resources required to create their own youth-led Initiatives for Peace programmes or conferences to meet the needs and circumstances of their own communities.
LAUNCH: UWCSEA IfP Toolkit
In celebration of the launch of the IfP Toolkit we brought together a panel of staff and former staff, students and alumni to explore the impact of the IfP on them, and their communities, and to discuss how the programme might evolve to become a global peace-education programme.

IfP is secured for the future through the Kaira Karmakar Memorial Endowment at UWCSEA, established in memory of our beloved student and friend. Hers is a lasting legacy of peace through compassion, friendship and focused action.
