Lay Down Your Weapons

One morning, my friend was leading an orphan care training session. “You can lay down your weapons,” she urged us to tell the children.

It was a typical day at the Back2Back Community Center of Tres Reyes – where given the choice between play and paint – the children choose art every time. For children who struggle to express their feelings, art can be a beautiful tool to help them grow and heal.

Engaging in Global Partnerships
