We learn Peace in Peace Zone in Uganda!
Teaching the 10 articles of Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War and Making Peace Zone in Uganda
There has been a rise in peace movements through Uganda's Action to Save Children and Their Rights(ASCAR), a peace organization in Uganda. ASCR's representative, Hamuza Kasozi held a signing campaign for supporting the DPCW and educated students on the 10 articles of the DPCW from the 22nd of May, 2016. Additionally, they have set up and been operating peace zone for students.
The students, who are the future of Uganda where peace is desperately needed, are learning the 10 articles of the DPCW. Mr. Hamuza Kasozi, who personally educated the students, said "students participated in the education with great interest, and they all wanted to sign in support of the Declaration after the education. Students now are filled with high expectations that peace will indeed come true. The education has strongly motivated the students on peace and made them seek for what they can do in order to achieve peace."
Also, Kasozi held another signing campaign during a local athletic event and it has been a great success. The local residents who participated in the event are making several contacts to ask when events like this will happen again.
A noticeable part that needs more attention is the peace zone that had been organized for students. Following is what Hamuza Kasozi said about the meaning of the peace zone and what he expects from the project.
“Peace zone will be a place where we will have seminars for peace in order to educate people about the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War. People who long for peace will gather there. We are mapping out the possibilities of various activities so that this place will be a crucial place for peace in Africa. Students will learn about peace gradually by cooperating through activities such as board game tournaments. As a matter of fact, it is not easy to gather people and have them listen to the news on peace. We are developing strategies to have many people come. This will be the headquarter for peace in Uganda."
We hope and anticipate that peace zone will be widely spread and set up in different nations of the world starting from the passion and devotion for peace in Uganda.
