Saiqa Kaur of New Horizon Kindergarten School in Faisalabad, Punjab, Pakistan organized the children to participate in the 2014 – 17th Annual Peace Pals International Art Exhibition & Awards art contest with the UN IDP theme “Right to Peace.”
I belong to Pakistan and working with children since many years. Peace and interfaith Harmony were the main theme of our work. We are interacting with children in the field of Art for Peace (Painting, cultural songs, Cultural dances, cultural festivals, theater)
I was trying to conduct this art activity in many schools or design it in a art exhibition for peace especially for the children of deprived and excluded groups but unfortunately I did not got good response from schools because they are having first term exams and summer vacations were started so it was blank for me.
With the help of our women volunteers, Lok Vehar Organized this activity. Children were briefed about them and they painted. At the end they told me very interesting stories about their paintings what they feel about it what they want to describe in their painting. They don’t have clear idea of UNO but for them if we have peace in this world every were we will have flowers, butterflies, peaceful homes, sharing this is peaceful world for them.
I feel we are sewing peace seeds and there is high hope someday they will grow and become huge trees.
