This is a drawing which has been created through a joint effort on behalf of Singapore and Timor Leste. Tarni and her school mates from The United World College of Southeast Asia in Singapore, had trained for a year to attend an Initiative for Peace Conference in Timor Leste. Tarni and her friends spent the past week there working with Timorese participants. During the conference, Tarni and her mates shared youth leadership skills with the participants.Tarni coordinated the Peace Quilt design. There were 12 designs which the conference participants and facilitators voted on, and this is the winning design, submitted by Qamaruzzaman Amir, the Physics educator with UWC, Singapore.
“I hope this design is credited to a joint Singapore/Timor Leste effort. In actual fact, we are an international school and our facilitator team of 24 represent 18 nationalities.
Thank you so much for your Peace Quilt effort. i wish you all the best for the completion of the project.” Qman
