The Amman Camp 2013 came to an end less than a month ago, and already our Lebanese Delegates have started to spread awareness about Generations For Peace.
On November 29th, the Development for People and Nature Association (DPNA) organised the Saida Hyde Park for Peace in Dar Al Inaya, Salhiyi. This event, which encouraged open dialogue on the subject of civil peace and the contribution of youth to peacebuilding, included an Art For Peace Corner organised by our Delegate Elissa Shamma.
The contribution made by Generations For Peace volunteers to this innovative event commenced with an Art For Peace activity led by Nour Heneine and assisted by Riham Zein. The activity – in which 15 children and youth were asked to compose music (using kitchen utensils including cups, trays and pans) – introduced the participants to the power and simplicity of music. Not only did Nour’s singing (which the music was made to accompany) discuss the importance of peace, the supportive environment created during the execution of this activity exemplified excellent leadership.
Well done to our Lebanese Delegates (depicted above), we are proud of you! Pass it on!
