The Foundation Omraam Onlus started a fundraiser to activate the project "Education begins before birth" in 2014. This project has as its fundamental objective the moral and spiritual renewal of human society through raising a greater awareness of those who choose to embark on the path of becoming parents. The methods used for the development of consciousness are those proposed by the philosopher and pedagogue Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov, methods whose validity has long been confirmed through numerous and authoritative medical and scientific research, carried out in different countries.
It is now well established that the state of mental and physical health, and also the character of each individual, depend to a large extent from the way he/she experiences the period of intrauterine life.
Aïvanhov’s approach leads us to see in the methods he proposes – that lead to a deep awareness of the whole process of a child's education (from preparation for conception, to birth) – the most important tool for the renewal of human societies. According to this perspective, if every parent conceived their children in love and raised them in the awareness of love, within a few generations the whole of humanity could live in an environment of harmonic Brotherhood, significantly reducing the propensity to wars and hostilities, to the point of determining the conditions for a perpetual peace.
Real Peace is in fact only created within the heart of man; only men of peace can ensure that it occurs in human relationships and among nations. The project "Education begins before birth" has precisely this goal: ensure that children are the future men and women of peace.
