Empowerment of Women

Mothers and Children Cooperate for Peace

Nairobi, Kenya - As part of its ongoing program to embrace vulnerable children, Global Peace Festival-Kenya sponsored a Mother and Child Cooperation for Peace event on August 1 at the Thomas Barnados Children's Home in Nairobi. The children competed in various activities such as dancing, art, and poetry. Since it was raining the activities were held indoors. Through the smiling faces in the audience, every child felt appreciated and valued.
