Kids4Peace in hope-filled visit to Wexford
Published 19/11/2016 | 00:00
YOUNG people from disparate communities in Jerusalem are due to visit Wexford tomorrow (Wednesday) as part of a visit organised by Amnesty International.
Nine young people from the Jewish, Moslem and Christian communities, members of Kids4Peace, are to take part in 'Storytelling for Peace' at the county buildings in Carricklawn at 3 p.m. on Wednesday.
Three of them, and three young people from Wexford, will tell their stories, the sessions followed by an informal discussion. All are welcome at what promises to be an enlightening event.
The group will also visit the Oireachtas, and other places of interest during their trip to Ireland, aimed at demonstrating how this country has overcome and resolved political, ideological and religious differences.
The aim of the 'storytelling for peace' is to bring together and celebrate the common bonds of different cultures and faiths. Kids4Peace was founded in Jerusalem in 2002 and is dedicated to ending conflict and inspiring hope in divided societies around the world.
