Art For Hope

Peace and Love International has partnered with Hope Flowers School in Bethleham in undertaking a uniquely empowering art project. The school’s students, ranging in levels from kindergarten to grade 6, submitted over 20 drawings, depicting how they felt about their lives, accompanied by their own photographs, to P&L volunteers in Vancouver, Canada. After being professionally framed, the pictures were placed on exhibits in both Canada and the United States.

Thousands of dollars were raised as the exhibits drew attention to the effects of conflict and violence on Palestinian children. All the acquired funds were used to help children from low income households, as well as those with imprisoned or deceased parents, attend school.

Our goal is to re-exhibit the work in order to raise awareness about the plight of youths in conflict while supporting the great works of our partner school.
