RE: Faith, hope and charity

An educational charity aiming to build better understanding between different religions has launched a range of new materials for schools.

The Feed the Minds Christian charity was inspired to create the Peacemakers resources following the July 7 terrorist attacks in London.

Peacemakers, which was launched at the Barbican Centre earlier this month, includes film, music and photography.

Katy Newell-Jones, programme director, said: "Fear and conflict arise as a result of a lack of mutual understanding and respect for different cultures and beliefs. The aim of the Peacemakers media pack is to help break down existing stereotypes and barriers across communities in the UK, regardless of people's age, background or faith.

"We hope that schools, community groups, mosques and churches will use the materials to convey the important message that education and communication are crucial to the development of community."
