Review for Create Peace Project, San Francisco, CA, USA
As Principal of Claire Lilienthal K-8 School in San Francisco, our students, teachers, and entire community enjoyed working with the Create Peace Project for many years. Students learned about different cultures around the world, and made 1:1 connections with other students in many regions that suffer from war and poverty. Brilliant and inspiring and artistic post cards were exchanged, bringing messages of peace, which were eventually displayed in our school. Ross and the Create Peace Project also presented beautiful and inspiring slide shows showing the faces of the students and teachers from the places they had traveled, the schools they visited, and the joy of the exchange. Also, Ross and the Create Peace Project coordinated a number of both indoor and outdoor murals on our school property, working with students, classroom teachers, and our ExCel After School Programs. These murals were beautifully and professionally completed, and will be a part of our school for many years to come, bringing messages of peace and joy to everyone in our school community, every day. This organization is amazing, great fun to work with, and brings a valuable lesson and experience during these difficult times in our world. We would like to see this program grow to become a city wide partnership with the San Francisco Unified School District and the Create Project for Create Peace murals and billboards throughout the city, as well as continuing the excellent work in our schools.
