Dona Nobis Pacem

I am very proud and excited to be a participant in the BlogBlast for Peace. Here is the Peace Globe Pixie and I made: If you remember the last BlogBlast for Peace, I told you about our Save the Children sponsored child, Mequelina. She lives in Mozambique. I think that is very far away! We got a new picture of the beautiful Mequelina just last month. She is 10 years old now.
I think this is the perfect time to share some more information about my friend Mequelina. She is attending the fourth grade, and her favorite subject is Mathematics. Her report says that she is a bright child! A few of the programs that Mequelina participated in during the last year are: Child to Child Training, Sports in School, and Basic School Materials.

Here is what I learned about the program in Mozambique:
Although life continues to be hard in Mozambique, Save the Children is determined to continue our efforts to improve the lives of rural Mozambicans in both Gaza and Nampula provinces. 2007 marks the second year of a new government in Mozambique, which has shown serious efforts to get as close as possible to the rural people through decentralization and what is called an "Open Governance." This has led to some changes in the decision-making process, especially at the district level where there is more autonomy.
The fragrance always remains in the hand that gives the rose.

Even though I love bananers, I will give peas a chance.

This is a great peace Globel of you and Pixie~!

And I am very touching for Mequelina, and this is a wonderful news at Peace Globel day. I am very very happy for her~! That country maybe is very hard, but I think if there is more children like Mequelina we saved, it will have more hope~!!!

Great sharing story, Daisy~!
