ONCE UPON A HOPE / IL ETAIT UNE FOIS L’ESPOIR
In support of the Be the Peace – Be the Hope program and in the context of the 2017 French Cultures Festival, the Texas French Alliance for the Arts (TFAA), French Education Greater Houston (EFGH), The Wide School, Eagles on the Rock, and Mark White Elementary are joining forces to create an exchange of tales/stories between children from Houston and those from several schools in Burkina Faso (including the students from the refugee camps where the Be the Peace – Be the Hope team recently implemented an educational and therapeutic art program. We are very happy that the Wide is joining the movement.
The goal of the project is to cultivate an exchange and a bond between the children of the two countries through French and English language while sensitizing the children of Houston to the situation of the children who found refuge in Burkina Faso. In doing so, we encourage them to keep developing hope, and to use their creativity so that they continue being part of the Be the Peace – Be the Hope exchange and supporting each other.
