“The education of children is the starting point for bringing the world together for global change. By instilling the necessary values for building a better world from a young age, we can hope for a more promising future, knowing that children are the future leaders and decision-makers of our world. Their education is crucial for the sustainable development of our planet.” This was emphasized by the Right Honorable Gelase Daniel Ndabirabe.

A delegation led by the Speaker of the lower house of the Burundian parliament participated in the 24th International Conference in India, which took place from November 1st to 7th, 2023 in Lucknow. The conference addressed issues related to children’s rights and education, aiming to prepare them to become responsible and fulfilled individuals. In-depth discussions were held to find concrete and sustainable solutions for a better future for the younger generations. The Burundian delegation actively participated in debates and exchanged experiences with other countries present, with the goal of sharing best practices and strengthening international cooperation in this crucial field.

Numerous guests from around the world were also present, including Presidents of Supreme Courts and justice professionals. Each of them contributed by proposing ideas for the establishment of institutions to protect children. These ideas were shared and discussed to find concrete and effective solutions. It is essential to highlight that these proposals were still at a conceptual stage, but the commitment and willingness of all participants were evident.

The protection of children is a top priority, and this meeting highlighted the importance of working together to ensure their well-being and safety. The discussions were diverse, with different perspectives from various countries and judicial systems. This diversity enriched the conversations and promoted a comprehensive and inclusive approach. The participants also emphasized the importance of international cooperation in combating violence against children and expressed their willingness to strengthen collaborations between countries.

The Speaker of the National Assembly of Burundi, Right Honorable Gelase Daniel Ndabirabe, responded to students’ questions by emphasizing that educating children is the starting point to unite the world for global change. He also mentioned that Burundi has already implemented a program that provides free access to basic education and healthcare for children under 5 years old.

Participants also had the opportunity to submit ideas to create a document that will better understand the guidance of children, so that they can become responsible future leaders of their own nation and the global community.

At the end of that International Conference, the Gandhi family met with the delegation from the National Assembly of Burundi, who had participated in that event on November 3, 2023, in Lucknow, India. It is important to note that Dr. Jagdish Gandhi is the founder of City Montessori School, which organized this conference.

At the end of this conference, the honorary participants issued and signed a resolution containing conceptual ideas to unite the world, protect children, and create a peaceful global government for all.
