Education is at the core of Cord’s work, so we understand the importance of good resources. Please visit our Shop to order your free school resources. It just takes a couple of clicks and we will deliver them free-of-charge straight to your inbox or to your door.

If we are to succeed in our vision of helping people peacefully build a new life after years of violent conflict, it is vital that young people understand what life is like for so many of those in developing countries who’ve suffered from war and conflict.

"Chad is different from Britain and France and people there have different lifestyles from ours. But we all share the same human spirit and the same determination to survive. I hope this pack will help you to understand more about life in Chad and inspire you to support Cord and the work they’re doing". Gillian Cross, author.

Our resources

We have cross-curricular resource packs available for both Key Stage 1-2 and 3-4. Both of these comprehensive resource packs developed in conjunction with children’s author Gillian Cross, are available free-of-charge to help you and your students explore international issues within the National Curriculum framework. 

Our young people are tomorrow’s leaders and they want to know what they can do to help people build a new life.

This is why working with schools is so important for Cord. We recognise that teachers are increasingly being required to address these global issues, and that’s where we can help; by sharing over 45 years of experience of working with people in the world’s major conflict zones. 

Why not let Cord help you create a peacebuilding assembly, or contribute to a lesson or workshop? 

We are very happy to send you stunning photographs and presentations of Cord’s peacebuilding work in Africa and South East Asia. You can use these in relation to specific aspects of the curriculum, including Citizenship, Science, RE, English and Geography.
