Educational Praxis is a grassroots non-profit organization consisting of teachers, musicians, health workers, community members and students. Our goal is to use education as the force to connect people from distinct backgrounds together in a setting to exchange local and global knowledge and skills. All Praxis members draw on their experience and work on a volunteer basis to accomplish this goal.
Praxis as an educational concept was developed by Paulo Freire. It is the time when theory and practice – reflection and action – fuse. Educational Praxis provides the learning experiences in which knowledge can be translated into action for liberation.
Educational Praxis members think there is a vital need for broader and deeper knowledge of historical, political and economic issues. In a time of globalization, there are few people-to-people encounters where new ways of human interaction emerge. Praxis works to change this by forging new links to promote critical thinking and creative action.
