What we do?
Day-to-day management at Rainbow Foundation Sihtasutus, which advocates for North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Peacekeepers Academy at Fort Bragg, North Carolina — a proposed federal high school with grades ten, eleven, and twelve — for five hundred dependents of 50,000 military personnel stationed at Fort Bragg.
Also a NATO Peacekeepers Logistics Academies Network (consisting of twelve small rural high schools for girls and boys) in the Republic of Estonia along the NATO border with Russia. Rainbow Foundation is registered in Estonia since 2002, with headquarters at East Wiru County, Estonia.
Expanding in Europe
Later, similar networks in Latvia, Lithuania, and Romania; in central Europe (including Poland, Slovakia and Czech Republic); and in western Europe, including Norway, Iceland, Denmark, The Netherlands, Belgium, Portugal, and Spain. Similar networks in Finland, Sweden, Austria and Switzerland — but only if and when they join NATO.
Expanding in North America
The academy planned for Fort Bragg in North Carolina is also planned for Fort Hood (in Killeen, Texas) the largest tank base in the army of the United States: "an Army Family numbering in the hundreds of thousands," including servicewomen and men, Department of Army civilians, contract employees and all their families who live and work at Fort Hood. (Please see homepage hood.army.mil)
A similar academy is planned for the United States Navy Space Warfare Command Atlantic at Charleston, South Carolina, on the east coast of the United States, and at Marine Corps Camp Pendleton on the west coast.
Also at Kingsley Field of the Oregon Air National Guard 173rd Fighter Wing, a western USA air base with a runway big enough to accommodate not only jet liners but also astronauts and cosmonauts who want to land but need an unusually-long stretch of runway for their high-powered spaceships.
Fort Bragg (mentioned earlier) is home to the John F. Kennedy Special Forces training center as well as the 82nd Airborne Division, United States Army, along with its own air base--originally named Pope Air Force Base.
Also in North America, there is to be a NATO Peacekeepers Academy between Ottawa and Toronto near the Great Lakes in Canada.
How many people are needed to support one NATO pilot or one NATO sailor or one NATO soldier? The answer is five people. So every group of 100 fighters in military uniform depend on 500 persons for their complete support in combat, in training and as North Atlantic Treaty Organization peacekeepers.
That is the mission of NATO Peacekeepers Academies: to prepare support personnel required by NATO, in a three-year-educational-program beginning with girls and boys at the age of 16 who have completed the ninth grade of school. This is nothing less than professional education—new academies in Europe and North America for professionals, educated by and for NATO.
"It is better to think about peacekeeping as a journey rather than a destination." (NATO Peacekeepers Academies)
In a separate group of projects, the North Carolina High School of Social Studies Foundation (incorporated in 1992) advocates for curriculum additions:
At the Bronx High School of Science:
- a computing sciences academy,
- an earth-and-space-sciences academy,
- a psychological-and-brain-sciences academy,
- two ninth grades academies to be called Green and Gold.
At the Grand Arts High School in Los Angeles:
- an architecture academy, combined with
- a civil engineering academy.
- At the University of North Carolina campuses for senior high schools (called Early College High Schools) located in Durham, Fayetteville, Greensboro, and Wilmington, economics academies focused on financial-crisis management and job creation.
