From Kenya we have received these designs from the Jabez Community School to join in the 2016 International Peace Quilt Project.

This first design has been drawn by Emmanuel Nzioki and says:

Having fun without anything dangerous happening around is a sign of peace.

The final design reads: Peace is Love 

Thank you to Head Girl, Betty for sending the designs through and to all the students involved from the Jabez Community Orphanage School. Additional thanks to Jabes Odhiambo for coordinating the project for Kenya. We are delighted to have you all included.

Kenyan Flag Description:
The flag of Kenya consists of three horizontal stripes – the top stripe is black; the middle one is red; and the bottom stripe is green. The red stripe in the middle is bordered on the top and bottom by a thin white stripe. There is an emblem in the center of the flag that consists of a Masai warrior’s shield and spears.

 

KENYA, Jabez Community School, Mukuru Slums

26 Mar

We received a number of drawings from the lovely children in the Jabez Community Orphanage School in the Mukuru Slums, Nairobi, Kenya under the leadership of Jabes Odhiambo. What amazingly creative children they are. 

The design above was drawn by Charity Mueni who says:

One Community, One People, One Peace.” Great work by Charity.

Thank you to Dennis Imbali for this one where he illustrates and promotes peace through sport and football.

Well done to Ramadhan for this design which is a celebration of peace itself showing the doves and the peace emblem.

Thank you so much to Peter Sotheran from the Guisborough Rotary club and to the organisation as a partner for working with contacts so these children can give their voice for Peace.

“The slums are home to approx’ 850,000 people, living in tin sheds with earth floors, no sanitation or running water. If you watched Lenny Henry & Angela Rippon in the Kibera Slums, then you get the picture. The Mukuru slum is only a mile or so away, across the railway tracks from Kibera.” Peter Sotheran

We are blessed and  honoured to have these children involved in this project.

Motto: ” Harambee” ( Swahili )

“Let us all pull together “
