Meet our Education Assistant Volunteers
We were delighted when, early in 2021, Santiago Forero and Sarah Croft joined us as Volunteer Education Assistants. We are very grateful that they are continuing a member of the team in 2022.
Santiago Forero is a psychologist from Bogotá, Colombia.
Over the last four years Santiago has been involved in the anti-militarist and non-violence movement in Colombia, as well as contributing to international networks such as Red Antimilitarista de América Latina y el Caribe (RAMALC) and War Resisters’ International (WRI).
He has served on the Editorial Committee at War Resisters League (WRL).
In his work for Education for Peace, Santiago has researched and compiled a series of information tables on the situation facing present-day conscientious objectors to military service in different parts of the world.
“We mustn’t continue strengthening war, either with our young people or economically”.
Sarah Croft is a student based in Kent in the UK.
In her work for Education For Peace Sarah researched and wrote our first factsheet about Conscientious Objection during the First World War, and shared in the researching and writing of a number of factsheets.
“Small steps are better than no steps and together we will end violence”.
“While studying my Masters I have been exposed to the devastating impacts war and conflict has on everyday life. Living in the UK I have been very fortunate to not see violence growing up. As people of privilege, we should share the voice of the voiceless. I believe everyone has the right to live a life in which they do not live in fear”.
