Montessori Model United Nations

Saturday April 27th, 2013 (10:00 am to 2:00 pm)

General Assembly Hall, UN Headquarters, New York

The president of the US Federation for Middle East Peace (USFMEP), Mrs. Sally (Salwa) Kader, is pleased to announce their sponsorship of the Montessori School Model United Nations at the General Assembly Hall of the UN Headquarters in New York City.  1,400 participants from 9 different countries, who will be representing 96 member states, will be taking part. This is the fourth consecutive year USFMEP will be hosting Montessori Middle and High Schools students with a view to educating them on the procedures and functions of the United Nations.  Mrs. Kader highlighted the importance of this endeavor asserting that “it is imperative to teach them about the United Nations system and mission due to their roles as future leaders, representing our hope for a peaceful world.”

The USMFEP strives to educate students, society, and the world believing education to be the most vital tool for the advancement, reform, and stability.  “I am very excited to be hosting this big event and I am sure it will be a great experience for us all,” Mrs. Sally Kader said. The federation aims to mobilize ordinary members of society in all the world’s regions, with a particular emphasis on women and youth, in contributing to the establishment of a lasting peace. We believe that women and youth are underutilized members of society whose undeveloped potential can be harnessed and channeled towards effective initiatives for peace. Mrs. Kader also emphasized her belief in the use of peaceful solutions to even the most difficult problems under all circumstances.

The USFMEP is a non-Governmental organization with consultative status with United Nations ECOSOC and associated with the Department of Public Information at the United Nations based in the United States, with branches on four continents.  Our offices are at the United Nations Regional Headquarters in Geneva (ECE), Addis Ababa (ECA), Beirut (ESCWA), Bangkok (ESCAP), and at the United Nation office in Vienna (UNOV)
