Reacting to a formal request to support and/or to participate in the Peace My City initiative, Paintsmiths Head Office (Woodstock), immediately jumped in and got painting at the newly identified ‘Peace Zone’ NY116 Sports Field in Gugulethu.
The International Peace Youth Group (IPYG) calls on youth around the globe to unite in an effort to stop wars, and pursue the restoration of peace. The IPYG now has over 200 000 members internationally, consisting of 805 affiliate organisations, and is represented in countries such as India, Germany, Switzerland and South Africa.
A ‘Peace Zone’ is an international initiative, and is a place where peace groups and civil society unite to identify conflict areas, and establish them as promoters of safety and security. (Please visit www.ipyg.org)
Paintsmiths Head Office was proud to be a part of the ‘Peace My City’ community project which was launched at the sports field on Saturday, 22 April, 2017.
