BURUNDI, Ecole Primaire GATUMBA VI

11 Mar

Thank you to everyone involved from Gatumba School, Burundi for these drawings and to Hugh Henderson and Felibien Ndore who helped the project to happen for Burundi.

The first one says, We all wish for Peace because when there is Peace people work and develop together.

The second drawing says, ” We all wish for Peace because where there is Peace children can study and become educated.”

Thank you to the two students who created these pieces for the International Peace Quilt Project.

Burundi Flag Meaning:
The three stars in the middle of the Burundi flag officially refer to the words in the national motto “Unité, Travail, Progrès” (French for “Unity, Work, Progress”). The stars also represent the three ethnic groups who live in Burundi – the Hutu, Tutsi and the Twa. The red in the Burundi flag stands for the country’s independence struggle. The green represents hope and the white stands for peace. Burundi gained independence from Belgium on July 1, 1962.
