Thank you so much to everyone from SOS- Hermann Gmeiner International School-Monrovia Liberia for these colourful pieces which we received today in the post along with a letter with a description of each drawing and this letter from Mr. Emmanuel A. Kyei

This letter explains how Liberia has been emerging from the doldrums of fourteen years of civil war, and sees the promotion of World Peace as a PRIORITY.

“I wish you could see the excitement with which the children  crafted those peace drawing!!:)  You will be more excited to know that these children  actually started the discussion of the meaning and the significance of their drawings with us as we guided them,”

MR. EMMANUEL C.  MORGAN National Communication and Advocacy Officer

Liberian Flag Meaning:
The 11 stripes symbolize the 11 signatories of the Liberian declaration of independence. The red and white colors symbolize courage and moral excellence. The white star represents the freedom the ex-slaves were given and the blue square represents the African mainland.

” Thanks for the link and for the invitation to the contest. It is definitely an idea that resonated with everyone here at school, peace is such a lacking element in our community right now that it was a relief for kids to express why it’s important.” Sandra Chavez

A Big Thank you to Sandra Chavez, Laura Guajardo and all students  involved.
