(SFC) Delegates and Pioneers with Generations For Peace celebrated the International Day of Peace 21 September with peace-building activities around the world.

“The determination and passion for change that our Delegates and Pioneers show is truly inspirational,” Generations For Peace Founder and Chairman HRH Prince Feisal Al Hussein said. “Our young volunteers work tirelessly to bring peace to their communities, and it is wonderful to see examples of all they are achieving around the world on this International Day of Peace.”

Teachers and students from the age of 12 to 17 used sport to tackle violence in schools in Jordan as part of the Violence in Schools Programme.

Delegates and Pioneers gathered a Georgian community to participate in an event with sport and arts-based activities to promote peace-building. The event was shown on local television stations and was supported by local sponsors.

Twenty-three Sinhala, Tamil and Muslim students from three schools in Trincomalee, Sri Lanka, were brought together for a programme of sports-based and traditional games. The event was the first for the Delegates and Pioneers in Sri Lanka, who completed Generations For Peace Training just last month.

Delegates in Nepal celebrated International Day of Peace with a peace-building session focusing on conveying views and thoughts through writing poems, drawing pictures, storytelling, and sharing ideas.
