Cultural Festival Success
by Adam Hayden Chapter Coordinator,Kids4Peace Cincinnati
THEY DID IT!!
Several Kids4Peace kids put together a cultural festival on Sunday, April 28th. They had an African dancer and a bagpipe player. They had a really cool drum presentation as well as culturally specific games (that was hilariously fun), an international camp presentation, storytelling, food from various parts of the world and more. It was really fun and the kids did a great job.
Furthermore, a smaller core group of students applied for a grant to fund the festival through the Cincinnati Jewish Teen Collective Venture Award and they were awarded the grant! They are such great leaders, so organized and so inviting and welcoming. Thanks so much to the kids and to the Jewish Teen Collective!
Now that the kids created an opportunity to celebrate their differences we will now move to exploring other ways in which we can come together to create more peaceful communities. The kids will meet over the next few months to determined which issues they would like to address locally. It is going to be hard work, but also a lot of fun as they work together to create more peace.
However, this week we are going to take a moment to celebrate their successful accomplishment from Sunday. They worked hard and pulled together a great experience.
Well done kids! I am proud of you.
