We welcome the drawing to represent young people of Escola Evangelica Peniel, Canchungo, Guinea-Bissau in The International Peace Quilt. Thank you so much to all students involved from 5th and 6th classes (ages 9-12) for taking part in the school competition.
Think of the people, Think of the wildlife .Peace should be appart of us.The World wants Peace.
Special thank you to Lynne Bogle whom we contacted through Pat Anderson from The Guisborough Rotary Club, for connecting us with schools in the industrial town of Canchungo where She lives. Due to a military coup in this country, the sending of the drawing has been held up.
The black star on the Guinea-Bissau flag symbolizes freedom and the African people; the red stripe represents the blood spilt for the country’s liberty and for the nation’s suffering during colonial rule; while the yellow represents the sun and labor; and the green stands for the lush vegetation, agriculture and hope of Guinea-Bissau.
