After finishing her studies at Ohio Dominican University, Sister Juliet Mwaba returned to Kasama, Zambia, where she ministers at the Barefoot C.C.S.. Among the items that she took back to Zambia was a suitcase full of Peace t-shirts, which she used to help create a wonderful event at the school – a special Peace Day.
The teachers and staff at Barefoot C.C.S. talked to the school’s students about peace and invited the students to create songs and poems to celebrate with dancing and drama.
Teachers and staff evaluated the songs and poems and awarded prizes to those that they judged to be best.
The students were also invited to express, by painting or drawing, how they could create peace in their own situations. This was a special event for the children since they do not have access to paper or paints in their homes in the bush.
Each child also received a Peace shirt and the students wore them proudly.
We are so happy to help spread peace to a new generation in Zambia.
