This is the chosen drawing received from Sahel Academy  Niger, West Africa. Thank you to Bayan Ayoubzadeh aged 15 from Grade 9.

Bayan’s  words:

Spiritual, Intellectual,and Physical education will lead people towards Peace all around the World.” 

Thank you so much to everyone involved from Sahel Academy.

Niger Flag Meaning:
The orange symbolizes the Sahara Desert, which covers more than half of the country of Niger. White stands for purity and innocence and the green stands for the River Niger, and the lush vegetation and fertile agricultural areas of the country. The orange circle represents the sun and also the readiness of Niger to defend its freedom.

Thank you to AISN, Niger for this unusual piece to join in the International Peace Quilt. This drawing was designed by 10 students using artist Keith Haring as inspiration.  The whole school (50 students and 12 staff members) voted on the wording. Special thanks to Judith Keller and all students involved.

We all wish for Peace because it unites people with Love.

“Thank-you so much for including us in this project.  We look forward to following the creation and presentation of the quilt.”
