I worked as a high school teacher for 12 years and head teacher for 4 years and founded a Civil Society Organizations (CSO). Being a teacher and head teacher, I participated in local teachers' meetings and nationwide teachers' union nonviolent education campaign.

Observing the situation of excluding children and their parents who are in difficult situations in our public education system, it feels me unrest. I stay on my core-self finding my strengths to land my hands to the teachers, parents and community leaders connecting to create an inclusive & justice situation at home, school and community. My current compassion is “To include peace education (justice and inclusive) in the public education." I have been facilitating Inclusive Education (inclusive school and classrooms) training workshops for parents, teachers, and duty bearers.
