Strategic Objective: To create opportunities for children and youth to engage in the arts and to discover things about themselves and others that will help them better deal with differences and handle conflicts peacefully.
The Children & Youth Arts for Peace Program is geared toward reaching 5000 children and youth, as they are the world’s next leaders, doers, and activists, and the best hope for a new and better future of tolerance, coexistence, and dignity. Children and youth from Africa and Canada are invited to submit their art creations to FIIDI Art Exhibition & Awards. FIIDI collaborates with partners (The Generals for Peace) to organize Art Exhibition & Awards at local, national, sub-regional, regional and international level. Every year children and youth are given the opportunity to propose a new theme to stimulate the participants to portray values of peace.
