This Peace Building Organisation is doing a remarkable job in promoting Peace and upliftment of Women. It is really heart breaking to know Dr. Izzeldin Abuelaish daughters had to lose their lives in the explosion in his home. Such a barbaric act by those committing this—will they ever realise that some innocent lives are breathing when they plot such a tragic explosion. Why these innocent lives especially children have to die when they are not connected in anyway in the conflict that’s going on… That’s the reason how important it is to educate these conflict oriented People to educate the essence of Peace and love, friendship and brotherhood and to live in Peace and harmony….
Organisations like these are doing this tremendous task of sowing the seeds of Peace and love among young minds who will take these virtues with them spreading the message to a longer community. It is said rightly to educate women is to educate a family so I think by focusing on women and young daughters this organisation is in turn contributing to the larger good of educating wider community and in promotion of Peace. My hearty recommendation as the most deserving nominee for this Award. My salutation for their hard work.
