29 Jul UTAH: Organization Teaches Religious Freedom and Human Rights
The Deseret News reports on the work of Hardwired Global, an organization that trains teachers to help students better understand religious freedom and other human rights. Hardwired has been running a pilot project in Iraq, Lebanon and Morocco. The project, which was funded by the U.K. Foreign and Commonwealth Office, trained 56 teachers in 46 schools, and helped more than 1,100 students learn to respond to religious difference in new ways. According to founder, Tina Ramirez, “what Hardwired does is nurture a respect for the deep religious values that people in these countries hold while also helping (participants) see how to model greater respect for others.” Hardwired Global is headquartered in Richmond, Virginia.
