Thank you very much to Natasha age 8 for this drawing to represent young people from The Sujit Kumar Happy Home and Fiji.
” We all wish for Peace because the World feels Happy with Peace and Happy.”
Special thanks also to Elizabeth Clayton for coordinating this project for Fiji and to Kay Pratt and Anna Font for finding us this wonderful contact.
Elizabeth does amazing work for children in this Country. We have also just found out that The Rotary clubs support this work,which is great as The Guisborough Rotary Club are also one of the partners in The International Peace Quilt Project.
One of Elizabeth’s favourite mottos was first written by Marian Wright Edelman:
“If you don’t stand up for children then you don’t stand up for much”
The light blue base symbolizes the Pacific Ocean. The dove in the coat of arms symbolizes peace. Two symbols of the emblem represent Fiji’s colonial past. The golden lion holding a coconut represents Britain, as does the red cross of St George of England in the middle of the emblem.
