PEACE ORGANIZATIONS

Note from Barbara: This first listing, sent in by Robert Stewart, stewartr@peace.ca, is not a peace organization, but I thought you might like to read about the peace efforts of children.

WALL OF PEACE web site: http://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/wallofpeace/

This is the story of a group of 12-year-olds who took a classroom exercise and made it the focus of the world. The project began inside the walls of Mount Gilbert Community College in Belfast in 1995 when pupils decided to write to famous people and ask them for a "Poem for Peace" for Northern Ireland. The response was incredible. Letters flooded in from all walks of life and were mounted on a display board so that others could share in what had been written. And so the "Wall of Peace" was born. It began as a school project but it has become much more than that. It has shown what a group of young people in Northern Ireland can achieve when they put their minds to it. And it has given them a voice - a voice which, through this web site, can now be heard all over the world.
