Ruby volunteered with Peace Mala for 2 days a week for 3 months in the summer of 2008.
"I have learnt so much from working here at Peace Mala about all of the different faiths and how they can work together. As an agnostic myself it has also opened my mind to other belief systems. I've met so many really interesting and inspiring people who get involved with the project and I have really enjoyed my time at Peace Mala.
The Peace Mala itself is a great idea because it's so simple and easy to understand and I've seen how enthusiastic teachers are about using it in the classroom.
Hopefully this project will encourage young people across the world to become more tolerant of each other."
Mostafa is from Alexandria in Egypt. He spent a few days with us this summer as a Global Xchange VSO volunteer.
"Peace Mala was my first knowledge of the different religions and belief systems in the world and how they all aim for the same thing. The Peace Mala project shows how we are all equal. Such knowledge enlightens the soul, opens the mind to the basic truths of life and encourages respect in all relationships. Everyone can learn from Peace Mala. I spent a few days working for the project and learned so much. Thank you Peace Mala."
