Peace For Children in Primary Schools in Iraq
an article by samir al badrawi
We are promoting peaceful coexistence between religions in Iraq through lectures for primary school children about the three religions in Iraq, Muslims, Christians and Sabians Al Mandaaen. The lectures for elementary school students are about peace and the cause of the violence in Iraq and the opinion of students on the causes of violence in Iraq.

There is also an exhibition of children's drawings, beginning from those of children in 7 primary schools of the Al Nashwa Municipality a rural area outside the boundaries of the centre of Basra, a region controlled by the poor against the religious tendency.
An initial selection was made of 42 paintings (six from each of the seven schools) and taken for display in an Almendaien temple. At the temple, children also made paintings and 10 of them were selected to add to the 42 previously displayed.The 52 were then exhibited in a church in Basra where an additional 10 paintings were selected from Christian children. Now there were 62 paintings, and they were all exhibited in the centre of the city of Basra, in the Basra Directorate of Technical Education.
