Back in July, Play for Peace conducted a youth training at a peace camp in Nampa, Idaho. Not only was it a great success, but it made a lasting impression on participants and inspired the creation of a new club.
Last year, Play for Peace worked with Texas A&M's Conflict and Development Foundation to bring laughter and joy to children in Guatemala. It was a truly inspiring experience for both the children and those leading the session.
Watch as the youth of Heart of Los Angeles (HOLA) tell us how xenophobia and racism impacts them and how they're standing up to end it.
The HOLA Play for Peace club took World Interfaith Harmony Week as an opportunity to build upon this theme and develop a greater understanding and appreciation of their differences.
Games, laughter, lessons learned, and nearly 12 people impacted, the Heart of Los Angeles (HOLA) Play for Peace group brought a wonderful, peaceful message to the Compassion Games.
