Finding peace after conflict
Holding weapon and sculpture

Over the years, Christian Aid partners have been involved with many innovative projects.

 

This has included work as diverse as education and health care projects through to artistic explorations of a countries history.

In 2001, The Christian Council of Mozambique shared with us some of the work that they had been doing to build peace after the countries long civil war. They encouraged people to hand in the weapons that were the legacy of conflict, and the Swords into Ploughshares Project decommissioned them and with the help of local artists turned them into amazing sculptures.

Our support resources can help you talk to school groups about how peace can be encouraged in communities. And in our gallery you can see some of the works of art.
